The opera ain't over till the fat lady sings Lyrics by Roger Miller

 

The opera ain't over till the fat lady sings by Roger Miller


To the opera I don't go
'Cos I know that Faust is slow
I can't hum Riggoletto
But since you took off I think you ought to know

That I'll keep crawlin' long as birds have wings
And I'll keep callin' long as your phone rings
I'll keep stallin' till the pendulum swings
'Cos the opera ain't over till the fat lady sings

Mister William I can't tell
If your overture was swell
???????? wasn't well
But since we broke up I haven't gone to hell

So I'll keep pluckin' at your old heart strings
I'll keep truckin' long as Basie swings
I'm not duckin' what tomorrow brings
'Cos the opera ain't over till the fat lady sings

Carmen left her Spanish town
Pagliacchi hid his frown
Yes I guess I'm like that clown
Tho you stood me up you'll never get me down

So while your cheatin' havin' all your flings
I ain't grievin', none of these things
Ain't retreatin' I'm a guy with wings
'Cos the opera ain't over till the fat lady sings

The opera ain't over till the fat lady sings
