"Two Ladies" as written by and John Kander Fred Ebb....
[EMCEE (spoken)]
So, you see, everybody in Berlin has a perfectly
marvellous roommate. Some people have two people.

[GIRL 1]
Beedle dee, deedle dee, dee!

[GIRL 2]
Beedle dee, deedle dee, dee!

[EMCEE]
Beedle dee, deedle dee, Beedle dee, deedle dee,
Dee!

[GIRLS]
Beedle dee, dee dee dee,

[EMCEE]
Two ladies.

[GIRLS]

[EMCEE]
And I'm the only man,

[GIRL 2]

[EMCEE]

To earn our daily bread.

[DANCE]

[GIRLS]
Ooh! Aah! Ooh! Aah!

[EMCEE]
We switch partners daily
To play as we please.

[GIRLS]
Twosies beats onesies,

[EMCEE]
But nothing beats threes.
I sleep in the middle,

[GIRL 1]
I'm left,

[GIRL 2]
Und I'm right,

[EMCEE]
But there's room on the bottom
If you drop in some night.

Deedle dee, dee!

[EMCEE (spoken)]
Thank you! Lulu! Bobby! And me!!
Oh, I'm so hot now!
Come, my Lieblings, upstairs!

    General CommentThis song is even better if you see it in performance! I don't know what it's like in the movie, but on stage the second girl is a guy in drag. It's pretty raunchy, but one of my favorites nontheless.

    General CommentIn the movie, this is two girls with the EmmCee, he is singing about having to girls, but in the movie, outside the cabaret, its about Baron Maximillin having Sally Bowles and Brian

    General CommentOne of my favoyurite songs. I prefer the current West End version where they're both females, but they made it too raunchy, so dancewise the old curtain routine was better imo.
