Caroline, or Change the Musical - Long Distance Lyrics
It's long distance,
It's your brand new southern daughter, it's Rose!
Oh everything's fine here,
How's the Hudson River?
I'm fine, just fine, I'm learning the lingo:
Magnolia, camellia, azalea, ya'll.
The temple'get this'has Sunday night bingo?
Just like the goyim.
A long distance call!
So much to tell. The boy still hates me.
(I really shouldn't be talking so loud).
He leaves money in his pockets,
And that really grates me,
I tell him and tell him it's not allowed,
Just shucking your laundry?
You hear that? Shuck!?
I'm a southerner already'on to the floor;
Take the money out first,
God know we?re not poor,
But show respect for your father.
He worked hard for that buck?
Well, no, not a whole buck, he's a boy,
But loose change. Quarters. Those add up.
The negro maid, she's making bupkes,
How does that look, leaving change in his pockets?
Indifferent to money,
The kid's a little funny,
Spoiled and quiet sad, I guess.
I'm on a diet. I bought a new dress.
Stu's giving lessons, playing, doing fine:
The work is steady.
He still misses Betty.
I don't mind.
I miss her too.
She was my best friend.
I miss the city.
I miss the old crowd. What?
Because we haven't got?
We can't give her a raise!
We aren't rich, we're just plain folk,
we've only got bupkes ourselves?
Typical, you obsess about the maid
While your daughter's miserable.
No, not miserable I never said?
Well, it's not what I meant.
I'm just not?
A hundred percent.
It's very hot, and very damp,
And out in the back yard there's a little swamp.
Full of noisy frogs. Last night I cried.
I miss you, pa.
I miss the Upper West Side.
