I'm a Broadway Baby on the Electric Ukulele

I bought a light-blue Bolo Tie a few days ago, & have worn nothing but smart blue suits ever since. This is Stephen Sondheim's classic song, "Broadway Baby", from his 1970 show Follies. There are several other homemade versions of this on YouTube, one of which comments, "Who do I have to #$@%# to get a break in this town?!" This song - intended to be sung by an elder chanteuse remembering her days as an aspiring starlet - takes on an interesting dimension when sung by young men far from Broadway, on democratic YouTube.
