Cornet Man
Lea Michele Song Lyrics

Artist: Lea Michele
Soundtrack: Funny Girl (New Broadway Cast Recording) (2022)


The lady ain't been born
Can take the place of a horn
With a cornet man
A-goin' where there's blowin'
Travellin' cornet man
Just anytime they call him
He'll leave his wife and kiddies
Sitting with their tongues out
To play for peanuts in a dive
And blow his lungs out
He'll hop a choo-choo on a moment's notice
To play some dates with billy bates
And rag-time otis.

The lady ain't seen light
Can give the horn a fair fight
With a cornet man
A rootin', shootin', ever-tootin' dapper dan
Who carries in his satchel
A powder-blue norfolk suit
A silver-plated wah-wah mute
There's-a whiskey, gamblin'
Each one's a curse
But I'm up against a devil that's worse
Yes, his horn's my thorn
He's my travellin' cornet man.

Pick it up, ottessa!
I'm fanny by the way, nice to meet ya
Boy, are you gorgeous!
I know this part!
My mama taught me this one
My daddy taught me this one
Back it up, boys
I'm takin' us home!

A powder-blue norfolk suit
A silver-plated wah-wah mute
'cause, he's shy on height
He's short on weight
But he's the only guy to make my coffee percolate
Dapper dan
My cornet-playin' man.
