      About "Back On My Feet Again"

      Lyrics for Randy Newman - "Back On My Feet Again"

      Doctor let me tell you something about myself
      I'm a college man and I'm very wealthy
      I've got no time to trifle with trash like you
      Cause I must be 'bout my business

      My brother's a machinist in a textile mill
      And he makes more money than you ever will
      He just got married to a Polish girl
      With a space between her teeth

      My sister's a dancer up in Baltimore
      At a small cafe on Main
      But she ran off with a Negro from the Eastern Shore
      Dr., she didn't even know his name

      [Chorus]
      Get me back on my feet again
      Back on my feet again
      Open the door and set me free
      Get me back on my feet again

      He took her down to Mobile in a railroad train
      He said, "Driver, take me to the Hotel Paree."
      He went into the washroom
      Washed his face and hands
      Dr., when he come out he was white as you and me

      He said, "Girl, I'm not a Negro I'm a millionaire
      As you can plainly see
      So many women love my money
      But you have proved that you love only me.

      "I'm going to teach you to play polo and how to water ski
      And you won't have to dance no more
      And I no longer must pretend to be
      A Negro from the Eastern Shore."

      Doctor, doctor, what you say
      How 'bout letting me out today?
      Ain't no reason for me to stay
      Everybody's so far away

      [Chorus]
