"The Opera Ain't Over Till The Fat Lady Sings" lyrics

The Opera Ain't Over Till The Fat Lady Sings

To the opera I don't go
Cause I know that Faust is slow
I can't hum Riggoletto
But since you took off
I think you ought to know

That I'll keep crawling
Long as birds have wings
And I'll keep calling
Long as your phone rings
I'll keep stalling
Till the pendulum swings
Cause the opera ain't over
Till the fat lady sings

Mister William I can't tell
If your overture was swell
Traviata wasn't well
But since we broke up
I haven't gone to hell

So I'll keep plucking
At your old heart strings
And I'll keep trucking
Long as Basie swings
I'm not ducking
What tomorrow brings
Cause the opera ain't over
Till the fat lady sings

Carmen left her Spanish town
Pagliacchi hid his frown
Yes I guess I'm like that clown
Though you stood me up
You'll never get me down

So while your cheating
Having all your flings
I ain't grieving
None of these things
Ain't retreating
I'm a guy with wings
Cause the opera ain't over
Till the fat lady sings

The opera ain't over
Till the fat lady sings
