I Ham What I Ham Lyrics
ANNOUNCER: And now ... presenting the Tony Award-winning star of "La Cage
aux Folles", Mr. George Hearn!
I ham what I ham, and when I ham, I get ovations.
Though I make you gag, dressing in drag vents my frustrations.
It's my chance to dress myself in pearls and ermine,
My chance to become the world's next Ethel Merman.
In pants I'm a lamb
But in a dress --
Hey world, I ham what I ham!
I ham what I ham, and when I ham, I am a phony.
Who cares if I swish?
It's worth a dish to win a Tony!
It's MY PART!!
So I'll rant and rave like Mussolini;
So what if I play it like a queenie Sweeney?
This wig is a sham --
Likewise, I am.
That's why I ham what I ham!
[Thanks to Glen Graber for lyrics]
