THE MINUTE WALTZ Lyrics

Artist: Barbra Streisand
Album: Color Me Barbra

I have got a minute, just a little minute,
I have only got a minute, just a minute,
I have only got a minute that is all the time
I have to sing this tiny little minute waltz
It isn't easy but I'll try it then
I've got to say goodbye
But first I take a minute
And put in it every note that Chopin wrote
and I thus I'll sing the little minute waltz
And hope that I can sing with no faults
and though it's difficult
I'll give it last every last breath that I've got within my body
Hope that my performance won't be very shoddy
Singing every note
will not do wonders for my throat
I probably will end up hoarse
Of course I will I've done it
On a wager that I may have will have not won
It's not the money but the -- satisfaction that I get
from winning money on this silly kind of bet.
Though this kind of solo wasn't his intention
Chopin isn't here to make an intervention
So with your permission and no intermission
I will sing each note that that composer wrote
as you can hear my trilling isn't very thrilling
but no one can say I wasn't very willing --
to attempt to sing what's not been done
and just for fun to sing the minute waltz.
As I sing the seconds fly, all too soon the minute walks by
And now I ask you where am I, halfway through the tune
and I'm falling far behind
I have less than 30 seconds
less than 30 seconds
less than 30
less than half a minute
I have less than 30 seconds
I have less than half a minute
to complete this little minute waltz,
where every note that's in the score faults
The sands of time, I know are pouring
Let me win my bet and I'll run with the money
Down to some big store and there I'll buy a honey --
of a trophy for myself to put upon the shelf show the world I won
Oh the second hand is rushing round the dial
And though I'd like to end this torture with a smile
Unless someone knows how to stop the clock
you gonna see me cry before I've said goodbye
Eight little measures to complete this song
But I'm afraid my little lungs will burst before too long if
Only I can last the scale
I won't have failed to sing the little minute waltz!
