"THIS MY LIFE + I DON´T CARE + WHERE IS MY MAN?". EARTHA KITT.

Eartha Mae Kitt (North, Carolina del Sur, 17 de enero de 1927 - Weston, Connecticut, 25 de diciembre de 2008), fue una actriz, cantante de jazz y estrella de cabaré de nacionalidad estadounidense, famosa por su carácter indómito y que se denominó a sí misma «la primera `material girl´», antecesora de Diana Ross y Madonna. Desarrolló una amplia carrera discográfica y cinematográfica, aunque tal vez se le recuerda por su (fugaz) participación como Catwoman en la serie de televisión de los años 60 Batman.
Eartha Kitt inició su carrera en espectáculos de
variedades y debutó en cine y teatro en 1948, medios en los que trabajó con múltiples figuras como Orson Welles, Sidney Poitier, Nat King Cole y Eddie Murphy. En su vejez hizo voz para películas de dibujos animados. Cantante talentosa con una voz peculiar, hizo famosas muchas canciones tanto en inglés como en francés, idioma que dominaba por sus actuaciones en Europa. Entre sus grabaciones más exitosas destacan C’est si bon, Love For Sale, Let’s Do It, Je cherche un homme y sobre todo Santa Baby (1953), canción navideña que sería versionada por Madonna en 1987. Su faceta musical repuntó a mediados de los años 80, con canciones de ritmo bailable como Where Is My Man, y siguió participando en el cine hasta sus últimos años.




THIS IS MY LIFE
You, you can walk out the door
Thinking you won the war
But I'm not keeping score
Me, I am used to the game
Win or lose it's the same
Someone lost, what a shame

Stop thinking you are number one
You threw the dice and never won
You never had a chance with me, and that's not hard to see
Each time you played a trick on me
I gave in to you happily
Knowing I had the upper hand, so understand

This is my life, what can I do

I can do very well without you

Without your sneer, without your smile

Without your arms and your awful idea

This is my life, what can I do
I can do it alright without you
This is my life and mine alone
And if you leave, I can live on my own
This is my life, what can I do


(Orchestral Break)

This is my life, what can I do
I can do it alright, without you
This is my life and mine alone
And if you leave, I can live on my own

You, think you made a clean break
Left me for your own sake
So you won't feel it again
Me, I can watch you depart
With no piece of my heart
With no pain, just a smile

I'd love to say I told you so
But what's the use, you'll never know
How many times I tried in vain to keep away the pain
Start thinking you are in my past
The two of us could never last
This love of ours was not planned, so understand

This is my life, what can I do
I can do very well without you
Without your smiles, without your sneer
Without your arms and your awful idea
This is my life, what can I do

(This is my life, my life, what can I, can I do)
(This is my life, my life, what can I, can I do)
(This is my life, my life, what can I, can I do)
(This is my life, my life, what can I, can I do).


I DON´T CARE
I don't care what the gossips may say
I don't care they can gammor all day
If they dare try to get in my way
They're aware I don't care what they say


Either way I will do as I please
Come what may if they're down on their knees
Who can say if I'm doing it wrong
For today I'm still here I am strong

I don't care what the people saying
I will still carry on this way
Let them jeer let them rant and rave
I'm still here if I misbehave

I don't care what the trendies may do
I don't care what they tell me is new
It's so square, monkey see monkey do
Let them stare I'm enjoying the view


Through the years I have paid them don't mind
Through the tears I have left them behind
By their fears do you think I'm afraid
No my dears not the slightest phase

I don't care what the people saying
I will still carry on this way
Let them jeer let them rant and rave
I'm still here if I misbehave
I don't care…


Some are sad, they say my taste is extreme
Some get mad, because the Kitt gets the cream
I have had the eyes of all of the world
Not too bad for a material girl

I don't care what the people saying
I will still carry on this way
Let them jeer let them rant and rave
I'm still here if I misbehave

I don't care what the people saying
I will still carry on this way
Let them jeer let them rant and rave
I'm still here if I misbehave
I don't care…

Let them jeer let them rant and rave

I don't care what the people saying

Let them jeer let them rant and rave
I'm still here if I misbehave

I don't care what the people saying
I will still carry on this way...


WHERE IS MY MAN?
I don't wanna be alone - where is my baby?
I don't wanna be alone - where is my man?
spend hours by the phone - where is my baby?
chew my fingers to the bone - where is my man?

I need a man who can take me then tount me and make me
Buy the things that I so richly desenre.
A man who knows what I require
the things that I desire -

Is there anyone out there who has the nenre?
I spend hours by the phone - where is my baby?
I chew my fingers to the bone - where is my man?

Where is my baby? He can't be far.
Look for an Ascot
A big cigar
Tell him to find me
Send his car to this address
I have to stress I need him now.

I don't wanna be alone - where is my baby?
I don't wanna be alone - where is my man?
The kind of man that I adore's
the kind of man that gives me more
Of all the better things in life that aren't free.

Such things as summer by the sea
The Hamptons
Malibu
Capri.
The kind of man
Who comes alive
When he comes near Rodeo Drive
Is the kind of man
Who winds my heart
With style and class.
You know I've tried
Some other men
The kind with zeros
Lessthanten
But everytime I grab
The ring it's always brass.
I don't wanna be alone -
Where is my baby? . . .
I don't wanna be alone -
Where is my baby? . . .
