The Minute Waltz (Streisand Barbra)

I have got a minute, just a little minute, I have only got a minute, just minute, I have only got a minute that is all the time I have to sing this tiny minute waltz It isn't easy but I'll try it Than I gotta say goodbye But first I take a minute And put in it every note that Chopin wrote and I shall sing the little minute waltz And hope that I can sing with no faults and though it's difficult I'll give it every gust of air I got within in my body Hope that my performance will be very shiny Singing every note will not do wonders for my throat I probably will end up hoarse Of course I will have done it And a will for that I made That what I want is not the money but the satisfaction that I get from winning money on this silly kind of bet Though this kind of solo wasn't his intention Chopin isn't here to make an intervention So with your permission and no intermission I will sing each note that that composer wrote as you can hear my trilling isn't very thrilling but no one can say I wasn't very willing to attempt a thing that's not been done and just for fun to sing the minute waltz As I sing the seconds fly, oh too soon the minute waltzes by And now I ask you where am I halfway through the tune and I'm falling far behind I have less than 30 seconds less than 30 seconds less than 30 less than half a minute I have less than 30 seconds I have less than half a minute to complete this little minute waltz And every note that's its score While the sands of time I know are pouring Let me win my bet and I'll run with the money Down to some drug store whare I will buy a honey Or a trophy for myself to put upon a shelf to show the world I've won Oh the second hand is rushing round the dial And though I'd like to end this torture with a smile Unless someone knows how to stop the clock you gonna see me cry before I said goodbye Eight little measures to complete this song But I'm afraid my little lungs will burst before to long if Only I can last the scale I won't have failed to sing the minute waltz!
