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.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
