Day 997: The Ballad of May West – Non-Limerick Lyrics. Verse 6

This is the sixth verse of The Ballad of May West.

Said she who started as vaudevillian
“This evening I feel like a million” 1
And followed it with “But one at a time.”
And climbed the ladder of success
“Wrong by wrong” in gaudy dress
The crowds all thought her humor was sublime.

1.Note: This is a slight misquote.  She actually said, “I feel like a million tonight.”
