Second Hand Rose Lyrics

Father has a business strictly second hand
Everything from toothpicks to a baby-grand
Stuff in our apartment came from father's store
Even things I'm wearing someone wore before
It's no wonder that I feel abused
I never get a thing that ain't been used

I'm wearing second hand hats
Second hand clothes
That's why they call me

[lyrics was taken from] Second hand rose
[ Second Hand Rose lyrics found on ]

Even our piano in the parlor, daddy bought for ten cents on the dollar
Second hand pearls I'm wearing second hand curls
I never get a single things that's new
Even Jake, the plumber, he's a man I adore
He had the nerve to tell me he's been married before

Everyone knows that I'm just
Second hand rose
From Second Avenue
From Second Avenue! Nu!
