Guys And Dolls movie - Adelaide's Lament lyrics

Song by Prince, Faith<br /><br>

It says here: <br>

The average unmarried female <br>

Basically insecure <br>

Due to some long frustration may react <br>

With psychosomatic symptoms <br>

Difficult to endure <br>

Affecting the upper resperatory tract. <br>


In other words, just from waiting around for that plain little band of gold <br>

A person can develop a cold. <br>


You can spray her wherever you figure there's streptococci lurk <br>

You can give her a shot for whatever's she's got, but it just won't work <br>

If she's tired of getting the fish eye from the hotel clerk <br>

A person can develop a cold. <br>


It says here: <br>

The female remaining single <br>

Just in the legal sense <br>

Shows a neurotic tendancy, see note: (looks at note <br>

Chronic organic symptoms <br>

Toxic or hypertense <br>

Involving the eye, the ear, the nose, and throat. <br>


In other words, just from worrying if the wedding is on or off <br>

A person can develop a cough. <br>


You can feed her all day with the vitamin A and the bromofizz <br>

But the medicine never gets anywhere near where the trouble is. <br>

If she's getting a kind of name for herself, and the name ain't his <br>

A person can develop a cough. <br>


And furthur more, just from stalling, and stalling, <br>

And stalling the wedding trip <br>

A person can develop la grippe. <br>


When they get on that train to Niagara <br>

And she can hear church bells chime <br>

The compartment is air conditioned <br>

And the mood sublime <br>

Then they get off at Saratoga for the fourteenth time! <br>

A person can develop la grippe, <br>

La grippe. <br>

La post nasal drip. <br>

With the wheezes <br>

And the sneezes <br>

And a sinus that's really a pip! <br>


From a lack of community property <br>

And a feeling she's getting to old <br>

A person can develop a bad, bad cold! <br>

(ADELAIDE sneezes)<br>
