Перевод песни Randy Newman – Half A Man

This big old queen was standing
On the corner of the street
He waved his hanky at me As I went rolling by I pulled the truck up on the sidewalk
And I climbed down from the cab
With my tire-chain and my knife
As I approached him
He was trembling like a bird
I raised the chain above my head
He said, «Please, before you kill me Might I have one final word?»
And this is what he said:
«I am but Half A Man, Half A Man
I'd like to be a dancer
But I'm much too large
Half A Man, Half A Man
I'm an object for your pity
Not your rage»
Oh, the strangest feeling's sweeping over me Both my speech and manner have become much more refined
I said, «Oh, what is this feeling?
What is wrong with me?»
She said, «Girl, it happens all the time
«Now you are Half A Man, Half A Man
Look, you're walking and you're talking
Like a fag.»
Half A Man, I am Half A Man
Holy Jesus, what a drag
