Mama, can you find me passed out on the carpet in the night?

Mama, are you near me?

Mama, can you hear me?

Mama, can you help me not be sober?

Looking at the pharmacy

A millions charms I see

Which ones were yours?

Where are you and the twitch you had

From a barbiturate?

My buzz is so much slower.

My high is so much lower.

The toadstool I see is so much bigger now that I'm so fucked up.

Mama, please forgive me.

Try to understand me.

Mama, don't you know I had no choice?

Can you hear me snorting,

With homos I%E2%80%99m cohorting,

Even though the disco is filled with voices?

I remember ev'rything you taught me

Ev'ry song I've ever sung.

Can all the notes in all the Arlen

Help me be as good as Garland?

My vibrato%E2%80%99s so much taller

But my range is so much smaller.

Your tone is twice as lonely

And, let%E2%80%99s face it: I ain%E2%80%99t so bright.

Mama, how I love you.

Mama, how I need you.

Mama, how I miss you

Vomiting goodnight.

Liza Pills says: "Liza was one of the most talented singers ever. She also had a lot of pain and struggle throughout her life. Despite that, she had a good heart, which is hard to encounter in New York. At a time when gay people were oppressed beyond belief, they identified with her struggles and she theirs."

If you really believed that LP, you would change your insulting screen name, which only contributes to the image of Minnelli as a pill-popping no-talent better off forgotten, not an artist on the level of Sinatra or Picasso or Callas.

YOU and YOUR NAME are part of the problem, LP.

To get serious for a moment, Ms. Minnelli's new CD, CONFESSIONS, is an artistic triumph. She will win yet another Grammy for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Performance kicking that STD-ridden dinosaur, Tony Bennett, to the curb at long last. It seems as if she finally took the backstabbing, vociferous haters' advice and has chosen a softer, more intimate approach to songs and the dividends are simply astonishing.

R68, the Complete A&M Recordings CD is the ONLY Liza Minnelli worth buying. See Link.

She's way too green on her early Capital recordings, and waaay too affected on the Columbia 1970s stuff. In 1968-71 on A&M, she was just right.
