I interviewed Leslie Howard
I interviewed Noel Coward
I interviewed the great Stravinsky
But my greatest achievement
Is the Interview I had
With the star who worked for Minsky
I met her at the Yankee Clipper
And she didn't unzip one zipper
I said "Miss lee you are such an artist.
Tell me why you never miss.
What do you think while you work?"
and she said, "While I work 
My Thought go something like this."


Zip! Walter Lippman wasn't brilliant today
Zip! Will Sorayan ever write a great play?
Zip! I was reading Schopenhauer last night
Zip! and I think that Schopenhauer was right.

I don't want to see Zarina
I don't want to meet  Cobina
Zip! I'm an intellectual
I don't like a deep contralto
Or a man whose voice is alto
Zip! I'm an heterosexual.
Zip! I took intellect to master my art
Zip! Who the hell is Margie Hart

Zip! I consider Dali's paintings passé
Zip! Can they make the Metropolitan pay?
Zip! English people don't say clerk, they say clark 
Zip! Anybody who says clark is a jark!

I have read the great Kabala
And I simply worship Allah
Zip! I am suck a mystic.
I don't care for Whistler's Mother
Charlie's Aunt and Shuber's brother
Zip! I'm misogynists
Zip! My intelligence is guiding my hand
Zip! who the hell is Sally Rand?
