Stanislavsky

Stanislavsky song lyrics – performed by Danny Kaye on his radio show

Who is the world’s greatest actor?
And how did I get that way?
Who made me a genius, the greatest projector
Who ever wore a toupee?

Who made me most miserable Hamlet
The deadest Romeo who died for his bride?
Who made me most awful Dr. Jekyll?
And then made me Hyde?

Stanislavsky!

Tongue Twisters as recorded by Danny Kaye

Tongue Twisters [Danny Kaye]

Tongue Twisters as recorded by Danny Kaye

Tongue Twisters, written by: Adolph Green, Betty Comden, Roger Edens

No, not the pellet with the poison – a different set of tongue twisters, as recorded by Danny Kaye

Everybody’s heard of Peter Piper
And the peck of pickled peppers that he picked
That’s such a silly simple children’s game
It hasn’t even got a name

But I’d like to bet that it’ll trip you
And I bet you’re gonna have to say you’re licked
If Peter Piper you pronounce with ease
Then twist your tongue around these
Moses supposes his toeses are roses
But Moses supposes erroneously
For Moses he knowses his toeses aren’t roses
As Moses supposes his toeses to be
That’s tongue twisters (more…)

When your heart is full of love you’re nine feet tall.

Salty old queen of the sea

But I’m home today
Singing Copenhagen, wonderful, wonderful
Copenhagen for me (more…)
