Title :

Folk Monologue


Can i get my glass of tea? mmmnothing like it!
At this time i would like very much to do a folksong. since folksongs
I think are still popular today. uhmthis one is in latvian and it's
From latvia. and it's about this tahitian girl who uhmhad this lover.
And then one day this lover decides that he doesn't like her anymore
And likes her sister better. so she decided that the only thing to do
Naturally was tosee. so one dayohwas very nice out
About 75 degreesand she was taking this walk down to the river to
Drown when sheshe tripped over this rock see. and uhmoh it was
Awful i meanshe broke her glassesshe scrapped her knees. and uhm
Just at this minute the lover and the sister happen to come by in a
Taxicab. sosee they saw her on the floor and shehaving an
Astigmatism in her left eyeshe thought that it was a wild bore. so
She figured oh boy i'd better get down to the river fast to drown so
She runs down there and what do you know the river was frozen. so i
Mean she just stood there you know and she went tchhhlike that. tch
And uhmbecausei meanshe couldn't do it that day. seeit was a
Small town they only had one riverso. anyway than she figuredoh
It's getting latebetter get home cause her mamma would be worried
And would kill her if she was late for supper you know. soi mean
She gets up and she starts walking around home and she bumps in to
This guyand what do you knowhe turns out to be an optometrist.
And just happens to happen to have her "suscription". soanywayuh?
Ohi'm sorry "subscription".so anywayi meanshe's i don't want
You to think that this is one of those hollywood-like stories: she
Gets the glasses and sees happily ever after. i meanthis isyou
Knowno like that. i mean she had to pay for the glasses just like
You and meshe ... welloh welli meani don't want you to think
That i'm lying but she did get about a dollar fifty offdollar
Sixty-five? so anywayuhm... this guy (oh) turned out to be very
Nice and he even told her where she could find another river.
Soi'll tell you the truththis girl was a real creep. i mean
You know who would wanna sing a song about her? i meanher sister
Was really much nicer. and uhmi meanii think she came from
A better family.

[singing]
Call me a boob
Call me a schlemiel
Call me a brain with a missing wheel
Call me what you will
But nonetheless i'm still
In love with harold mingert
It's not because he has a car
Arnie fleisher has a car
And a car is just a car
But if harold didn't have a car too his name
I guess i'd love him just the same
Call me what you will
But nonetheless i'm still
In love with harold mingert
And it's not because he has a wealthy family
Arnie fleischer has a wealthy family
But money isn't everything
And if harold didn't have a car too his name
I know i'd love him just the same
But sometimes i ask myself why than
Do i than love harold mingert
Harold isn't handsome or clever or smart
And i don't find romance and a dance in his heart
The only answers i can think about
Harold mingert's money and harold mingert's car
Call me what you will
But non the less i'm still
In love with harold mingert
Also arnie fleisher!
