Barbra Streisand – Down With Love –

2 Aug

Down with love the flowers and rice and shoes
Down with love the root of all midnight blues
Down with things that give you that well-known ping
Take that moon wrap it in cellophane

Down with love let’s liquidate all its friends
Moon and June and roses and rainbow’s ends
Down with songs that moan about night and day
Down with love yes take it away, away

Away
Far away
Give it back to the birds and bees and the Viennese

Down with eyes romantic and stupid
Down with sighs and down with cupid
Brother let’s stuff that dove
Down with love

Down with love let’s liquidate all its friends
The moons the Junes the roses and rainbow’s ends
Down with songs that moan about night and day
Down with love yes take it away, away

Far away
So very, very far away
Give it back to the birds and the bees and especially the Viennese

Down with eyes romantic and stupid
Down with sighs and down with cupid
Brother let’s stuff that dove
Down with love

    I’m sure she did Shi as the repertoire was the same in her London concert except that when I saw it on 22 July, she didnt sing I Dreamed of You which she did on the 18 July performance which she sang for hubby James Brolin whose bday fell on the same day.

    It was my first time to hear this tune live and didnt realise how a great song it was (by Harold Arlen) and talk about perfect timing! Not to mention Babs sang it really well too. šŸ™‚
