The lady is a tramp

Featured in Rodgers and Hart’s 1937 musical Babes in Arms, the song lampoons New York high society. The musical had a strong political undercurrent, despite which it seemed to catch the attention of the New York audiences running for 289 performances, before being turned into a successful film. This was largely thanks to a good plot and great songs.

Der Song stammt aus dem Musical Babes in Arms von Lorenz Hart und Richard Rodgers aus dem Jahr 1937, das die New Yorker High Society parodiert. Das Musical hatte einen starken politischen Unterton, aber trotzdem zog es die Aufmerksamkeit des New Yorker Publikums auf sich und erreichte 289 Aufführungen, bevor es dank einer guten Handlung und großartigen Songs (wie The Lady is a Tramp) erfolgreich verfilmt wurde.
