If there's a wrong bell, I ring it



Many happy returns to the ever-youthful bundle of energy that is Miss Goldie Hawn - remarkably, she blows out 68 candles on her cake today!

Here she is with a typically self-deprecating number, as she explains Nobody Does It Like Me...



If there's a wrong way say it
And a right way to play it
Nobody does it like me

If there's a wrong way to do it
A right way to screw it up, ha
Nobody does it like me

I've got a big loud mouth
I'm always talking much too free
If you go for tact and manners
Better stay away from me

If there's a wrong way to keep it cool
A right way to be a fool
Nobody does it like me

I hear a love song or ballad
I toss like a salad
Nobody tosses like me

And when my evenings get tougher
I just take to bufferin'
And drink a hot cup of tea

Last night, I met an old acquaintance
At a fancy corner pub,
He said 'come on let's have some supper'
Then he used my credit club

If there's a wrong way take a guy
The worst way to make a guy
Nobody does it like me

If there's a wrong bell, I ring it
A wrong note I sing it
Nobody does it like me

If there's a problem, I duck it
I don't solve it I just muck it up
Nobody does it like me

And so try to be a lady
I'm no lady I'm a fraud
And when I talk like I'm a lady
What I sound like is a broad

If there's a wrong way to get a guy
the right way to lose a guy
Nobody does it like me!

Indeed they do not. We adore Miss Hawn.

  1. Love her, always have (First Wife's Club, Death Becomes Her, Private Benjamin, Foul Play etc). Can't believe she's almost 70!

    Never saw that performance, thanks! Happy birthday - hope she parties like Guns N Roses came over ;)

      PS I think she and Kurt may well have a few small sweet sherries to celebrate.
