Sometimes something happens and I have no choice but to put the situation to music. So there is truth to some of this ditty, but there is also imagination working into the song. I envisioned the thing set to a light-hearted march. I do hope you enjoy.
PROPOSITION MRS. K
I was walking down the street, enjoying the sun
Having a good time, looking for fun
When a man walked up, stopped me on the street
Called me by my name and he looked so sweet
Cho: I've got a proposition for you, Mrs. K
Would you like to make some money today?
It could be fun, it could be swell,
Take your time and think it over well.
Well my blood's not blue and madam's not my name
But I'm always ready for a new game
So I listened to what the man had to say
Cause money talks and I can use some today.
He put thoughts of jewelry inside my head,
A life of luxury on a silken bed
With diamonds and a jacket of mink
It might be fun, now what do you think?
He pointed to a shop on the street
Said I sell shoes to put upon your feet
You look like you could sell a shoe or two
I need some help, yes, you might do.
Well, I dropped my jaw and my ego hit the floor
And I'm not walking a so tall any more.
I thought he saw me as a sexy turtle-dove
But he wanted me to work and not to love.
Cho: He had a proposition for this Mrs. K
He wanted me to sell some shoes today.
Now that's not fun and it's sure not swell
I thought it over, and I can tell him -
