Bette addresses the crowd at her 100th performance with a poem… Monday, June 8
The president’s first hundred days Was news around the globe While mine, I’m celebrating In a corset and a robe
Though he exposed his policies For critics all to see Instead I am exposing, well, An awful lot of me!
I’ve done this gig a hundred times And still, how it can thrill me You see, I really can’t believe Each time it doesn’t kill me
But you know I will continue I will be here every night Doing numbers in a fishtail While I’m burning cellulite
For what’s a mere 100 shows In the great big scheme of things When the people need their Diva And some wind beneath their wings
So fear not because this Showgirl — Though she’s tired, old and sore — Will be going on and on until She does a hundred more!
