  • Father has a business strictly second hand
    Everything from toothpicks to a baby-grand
    Stuff in our apartment came from father's store
    Even clothes I'm wearing someone wore before
    It's no wonder that I feel abused
    I never get a thing that ain't been used
    I'm wearing second hand hats

    Second hand clothes
    That's why they call me
    Second hand Rose
    Even our piano in the parlor
    Daddy bought for ten cents on the dollar
    Second hand pearls
    I'm wearing second hand curls

    I never get a single think that's new
    Even Jake, the plumber, he's a man I adore
    He had the nerve to tell me he's been married before!
    Everyone knows that I'm just
    Second hand Rose
    From Second Avenue!
    From Second Avenue!
