“How Lovely To Be a Woman” – Bye, Bye, Birdie

Music: Charles Strouse   Lyrics: Lee Adams

No man understands how lovely it is to be a woman more than a drag queen, especially those who participated in RuPaul’s Drag Race, the hit reality competition series which first aired on this day in 2009.  There are no drag queens in this lovely little musical about a rock star being drafted into the army, but it is a delight nonetheless.  So put on a happy face because you’ve got a lot of living to do!
