Yes, I totally agree. The song is about doing what you like and not comforming to society's roles. Of course, originally the song was in the first person
I'd definitely agree with Two Ravens, I love that song because it's about a woman not conforming and making her own choices.
I agree with this. I wouldn't have a problem with The Lady is a Tramp. It's about why people call
her a tramp (for not conforming), not that she is one. According to Wikipedia, it is a "sophisticated and witty spoof of New York high society."She gets too hungry for dinner at eight
She loves the theater, but never comes late
She never bothers with people she hates
That's why the lady is a tramp
It makes me think of a strong, independent woman, not a floozy.
Edited: Yes, it does refer to women as "broads." What do you want for a song written in 1937?
I agree with the LW's other songs, though.
