"Find Yourself A Man" as written by and S. Brooks E. Green....
Time has passed. Fanny has given birth to a daughter, Frances, who is now
five months old, and Fanny is going back into the new Ziegfeld show. Eddie
and Mrs. Strakosh suggest that Fanny's mother needs a new interest in life.

Eddie and Mrs. Strakosh:
Find yourself a man--
Mrs. Brice:
You're demented.
Eddie and Mrs. Strakosh:
Find yourself a man--
Mrs. Brice:
That's just what I need.
Eddie:
You'll see what a difference it makes ev'ry day.
Mrs. Brice:
Send me a letter,
You'll write me a resumé
Mrs. Strakosh:
Just take me and Dave--
Mrs. Brice:
Romeo and Juliet--
Eddie:
Dave is still her slave.
Mrs. Brice:
Send the slave my regards!
Eddie and Mrs. Strakosh:
Open your heart and from out of the skies
A prince on a horse will materialize.
Mrs. Brice:
Boy, is some lucky prince
Gonna get a surprise!
All:
Find a man!
Eddie and Mrs. Strakosh:
Find yourself a man,
Mrs. Strakosh:
I repeat it, Rose.
Mrs. Brice:
Find myself a man.
Eddie:
You're defeated, Rose.
Mrs. Brice:
I'll hang a sign out,
Big letters that high,
Come in and sample
You don't have to buy.
Eddie:
Hear a voice talk back.
Mrs. Brice:
I hear voices now.
Mrs. Strakosh:
Money you don't lack--
Mrs. Brice:
Why, you've been countin'?
Just what I need is a middle-aged sheik
Whose uppers and lowers
Will click when he'll speak,
And life is a song 'cause he'll click and I'll creak.
All:
Find a man.
Eddie and Mrs. Strakosh:
The man that you select--
Mrs. Brice:
What about him?
Eddie and Mrs. Strakosh:
Must treat you with respect.
Mrs. Brice:
That's important.
Eddie:
He must understand there
Are rules to obey,
Not toy with your morals
And lead you astray.
Mrs. Brice:
Please, darling, let the man do things his way.
Mrs. Strakosh and Eddie:
Find a man--
Mrs. Brice:
I'm a grandmother!
Mrs. Strakosh:
Find a man--
Mrs. Brice:
You got somebody in mind?
All:
Find yourself
A man.
