The sublime, seductive sound of the smooth & sultry songstress
"Sometimes me and the opposite sex just don’t get along. I mean, we do and we don’t. Take this last one. She and I were getting on just fine. We went to the movies, I took her to shows, I took her out to fancy restaurants. The whole works. I treated her real good. She was a class act too. Blonde hair, blue eyes. A smile to die for. Then all of a sudden, she went cold on me. Cut me off. Why do they do that? What gives?"
"I mean, I’m an OK guy. I’m clean, smart, I shave every day. I wear the best suits, I use the best Cologne. OK so I don’t have what you’d call ‘a regular job’, but I got plenty of dough, and I know how to spend it. I like the finer things in life. Restaurants, Cuban cigars, fancy cars. The whole caboodle. What’s not to like?"
"I’ll tell you what. These dames don’t know a good thing when they see it. They meet a guy like me and they don’t know what’s hit ‘em. I take them out, I wine them and dine them and they just can’t handle it. They’d rather go for some kinda Joe Schmoe than a classy guy like me. And that’s what I don’t understand. So what gives?"
