Tin Can at My Feet
Every singer wants a hit,
Randy Newman threw them a bone…
Nora, Bette and Melanie,
Sang it but weren’t alone.
Dusty, Judy, Diamond and Crocker,
Tried to make it their own;
So did Barbara, and Claudine Longet,
And also Tom O’Dell and Nina Simone.
Mr. Newman scored a winner;
Royalties earning a rich man’s pay…
Never once has he looked back,
Or thought of rain today.
