Eta, my choral group is doing - among other things - a suite from Beauty and the Beast, and I was looking for a way to wiggle one of the songs in - you beat me to it!

Burns: Some men hunt for sport,
Others hunt for food,
The only thing I'm hunting for,
Is an outfit that looks good...

See my vest, see my vest,
Made from real gorilla chest,
Feel this sweater, there's no better,
Than authentic Irish setter.

See this hat, 'twas my cat,
My evening wear - vampire bat,
These white slippers are albino
African endangered rhino.

Grizzly bear underwear,
Turtles' necks, I've got my share,
Beret of poodle, on my noodle
It shall rest,

Try my red robin suit,
It comes one breast or two,
See my vest, see my vest,
See my vest.

Like my loafers? Former gophers -
It was that or skin my chauffeurs,
But a greyhound fur tuxedo
Would be best,

So let's prepare these dogs,
Mrs. Potts: Kill two for matching clogs,
Burns: See my vest, see my vest,
Oh please, won't you see my vest.

Monty Burns - The Simpsons

I walked 47 miles of barbed wire,
I got a cobra-snake for a necktie,
I got a brand new house on the roadside,
Made from rattlesnake hide,
I got a brand new chimney made on top,
Made out of a human skull,
Now come on take a walk with me, Arlene,
And tell me, who do you love?

Who do you love?
Who do you love?
Who do you love?


Tombstone hand and a graveyard mind,
Just 22 and I donít mind dying.

Who do you love?
Who do you love?

I ride around town, with a rattlesnake whip,
Take it easy Arlene, donít give me no lip,

Who do you love?

Night was dark, and the sky was blue,
Down the alley, the ice-wagon flew,
Heard a bump, and somebody screamed,
You should have heard just what I seen.

Whom do you love?


Who Do You Love

RADAR LOVE

Iíve been drivinĎ all night my handís wet on the wheel
Thereís a voice in my head that drives my heel
And my baby calls that she needs me here
Itís half past four and Iím shifting gear

When she gets lonely and the longing gets too much
She sends a cable cominĎ in from above
We donít need to talk at all

We got a thing thatís called radar love
We got a wave in the air
Radar Love

Well, it seems like a year since I kissed my baby good-bye
I could make a lot of women, but I'm not like some other guys
I could find a lot to hold me tight
But I can't make believe that it's right
Six days on the road and I'm gonna make it home tonight

Bye Bye Baby, baby goodbye .
Bye baby, baby bye bye.
Bye bye baby, don't make me cry
Bye baby, baby bye bye.

You're the one girl in town I'd marry
Girl, I'd marry you now if I were free
I wish it could be.
I could love you but why begin it
'Cos there ain't any future in it,
She's got me and I'm not free, so:

Bye Bye Baby, baby goodbye.
... ad infinitum

Well toot toot Tootsie goodbye toot toot Tootsie don't cry
That choo choo train that takes me
Away from you no one can tell how sad it makes me
Kiss me Tootsie and then do it over again
Watch for the mail I never fail
If you don't get a letter then you'll know I'm in jail
Toot toot tootsie don't cry toot toot Tootsie goodbye

Music and Lyrics by Ted Fio Rito, Robert A. King, and Gus Kahn
Sung by Al Jolson

Well, she wrote me a letter
Said she couldn't live without me no more
Listen mister, can't you see I got to get back
To my baby once-a more
Anyway, yeah!

Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner
But he knew it wouldnít last.
Jojo left his home in tucson, arizona
For some california grass.
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged
Get back, get back.
Get back to where you once belonged.

Take it Easy

Well, I'm running down the road
tryin' to loosen my load
I've got seven women on my mind,
Four that wanna own me,
Two that wanna stone me,
One says she's a friend of mine

Take It easy, take it easy
Don't let the sound of your own
wheels drive you crazy
Lighten up while you still can
don't even try to understand
Just find a place to make your stand
and take it easy

Well, I'm a standing on a corner
in Winslow, Arizona
and such a fine sight to see
It's a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed
Ford slowin' down to take a look
at me

-- Eagles
