Queen Bee...Barbra Streisand, 1976.
A Serenade of Seventies songs, from the soundtrack of my life, is my theme for the A-Z challenge this year.
A Star is Born? The movie? You mean there was more than just an incredible soundtrack? I was not old enough back then to partake. Instead, I fabricated my own story from the pictures on the album cover, inserting some version of of myself wherever I saw fit. Kris Kristofferson was so dreamy!
The black, black widow is sittin' in the middle
Of the web, it's the fly she seeks
You may be her lover, but you never will recover
Cause she aint had a bite for weeks
You think you're the same, cause you got the same name
But the widow has a mobile home
Remember what I told you, she got eight arms to hold you
And she's never gonna let you roam
I loved the lyrics to this song and the punch Barbra packed into the delivery of each one.
My favorite part...
So, in conclusion, it's an optical illusion
If you think that we're the weaker race
Men got the muscle, but the ladies got the hustle
And the truth is staring in your face
Love it still!
