GUEST,Phil Lyr Add: Songs by Andy Razaf and Fats Waller (40) Lyr Add: DIXIE CINDERELLA (Razaf/Waller/Brooks) 31 May 15

From "Connie's Hot Chocolates" (Revue)
Words by Andy Razaf; music by Thomas "Fats" Waller and Harry Brooks. ©1929.

Never had the measles
And I ain't got the flu.
Still the other children run from me
The whole day through.
I've got lots of playthings
And I can sing a song.
But no one wants me around
It's seems I just don't b'long.

I'm a little Dixie Cinderella
Just a blue and lonesome as can be.
Wish that I could find a fortune teller
Is there any happiness on earth for me?
I hide in the attic and the cellar
Even there it seems I'm in the way.
Though I have done no wrong
They have picked on me for years.
And I have cried so long
'Till I have run out tears.
Oh, I'm a little Dixie Cinderella
Just a blue and lonesome as can be.

[Chorus 1x]
