Barbra Streisand

Second Hand Rose

Play

Father has a business strictly second hand
Everything from toothpicks to a baby grand
Stuff in our apartment came from father's store
Even clothes I'm wearing someone wore before
It's no wonder that I feel abused
I never get a thing that ain't been used

I?m wearing second hand hats
Second hand clothes
That?s why they call me
Second hand Rose

Even our piano in the parlor
Daddy bought for ten cents on the dollar
Second hand pearls
I'm wearing second hand curls
I never get a single thing that's new

Even Jake, the plumber, he's the man I adore
He had the nerve to tell me he's been married before
Everyone knows
That I?m just Secondhand Rose
From second avenue
Fom second avenue?nue
