Call Me Madam - Lichtenburg Lyrics

1950 Broadway
Call Me Madam the Musical - Lichtenburg Lyrics

The song is written by Irving Berlin.

I don't think you know much about us,
Except, of course,
Our famous Lichtenburg cheese.
I know very well you enjoy it
And we would enjoy it too.
But we can't afford it,
For we must have dollars
And so we send it to you.

Too small to be a city,
Too big to be a town,
Too poor to have an army
And too easy to knock down.
Too little to sell across the seas.
Babies and cheese are our main industries.

Too slow to please the young folk,
Too fast to please the old,
Too many who have copper pennies,
Too few who have gold.
But somehow we manage to play the game,
While the other lands keep changing hands,
Old Lichtenburg stays the same.
