Song Lyric Sunday

#Happy Song Lyric Sunday  ❤

“Wedding/Marry/Diamond/Ring/Cake,”  Today’s prompt !!!!  One of my fav’s ❤  Sadie, Sadie married lady, that’s me.  This is such a fun song to sing.  It’s in one of my all time favorite movies, “Funny Girl” starring Babara Streisand & the dreamy Omar Sharif ❤  Right up there with Clark Gable.  I’m not really that old, but my mom use to expose me to the great ones of her generation.  Propably that’s where I got my love of all things music and theater.  She’s an RN (retired) but she could play any instrument and was the leader of the marching band in Highschool.

Act II opens with the newly wed Fanny and Nick
Arriving at their home in Long Island. Fanny’s
Friends have prepared a surprise party for them.
Ziegfeld is there, hoping Fanny will be in his new
Show; he’s even hired her friend Eddie as dance
Director. Fanny’s Ziegfeld friends ask her what
It’s like be married and she replies:
[Fanny:]
I’m Sadie, Sadie, married lady,
Bow when I go by.
I’m a corporation now,
Not me, myself and I.
Oh how that marriage license works
On chambermaids and hotel clerks.
The honeymoon was such delight
That we got married that same night.
I’m Sadie, Sadie, married lady,
Still in bed at noon,
Racking my brain deciding
Between orange juice and prune.
Nick says nothing is too good for me,
And who am I not to agree?
I’m Sadie, Sadie, married lady, that’s me!
[All:]
She’s Sadie, Sadie, married lady,
[Fanny:]
Meet a mortgagee,
[All:]
The owner of an icebox
[Fanny:]
With a ten-year guarantee.
Oh, sit me in the softest seat,
Quick, a cushion for my feet.
Do for me, buy for me, lift me, carry me,
Finally got a guy to marry me!
I do my nails,
Read up on sales,
All day the records play.
Then he comes home, I tell him
Oy–what a day I had today!
I swear I’ll do my wifely job,
Just sit at home–become a slob!
I’m Sadie, Sadie, married lady, that’s me!
[All:]
She’s Sadie, Sadie, married lady,
[Boys:]
Sadie, you did the trick.
[Fanny:]
It’s nothing!
[Girls:]
Not ev’ry girl can get herself
A guy who looks like Nick.
[Fanny:]
Wait, to tell the truth, it hurt my pride–
The groom was prettier than the bride.
[All:]
Sadie, Sadie, married lady,
[Fanny:]
Husband, house, a mortgage, a baby,
[All:]
Sadie, Sadie, married lady,
[Fanny:]
That’s who?
[All:]
That’s you.
[Fanny:]
That’s me–married lady.
[All:]
Say hello to Ziegfeld’s married lady–Sadie!

Sadie, Sadie married lady…40 years this August, wow !!! ❤  (He married me when I was 12 😉 )
That’s me 

I absolutely love, love, love singing this song, while looking at my, “Sadie, Sadie” ring.

My Sadie, Sadie Ring …

 It makes me smile.  The husband absolutely hates it when I do that and threatens me that he will start singing Elvis if I don’t stop 😉  I stop, wink, wink and smile.  Great movie (musical).  Good for a Sunday Movie.  It’s really the true story about Fanny Brice.  I think that’s what makes me love, love ❤ it even more.  Happy Song Lyric Sunday again everyone…

    • Happy Sunday, Mr. John. Like yours too. Who did that song and made it famous in the 60’s. I thought someone else did it too but I can’t remember who. 🌻🌻

  1. Well this is a new one for me, both the movie and the song. I think I’d like seeing the movie, and the song is really cute. Of course Barbra is a wonderful actress! 🙂
