The Eartha Kitt fan club has a lyrics transcript, which is especially notable for showing both the lyrics she’s singing here and the “official” lyrics, which are much more tame. I think my favourite verse is this:
And in the theatre
I want to change my seat
Just so I can step on
Bonus: of course a song this awesome has been adapted for the purpose of fansquee – here’s a slideshow of screen villains who make one tisreina want to be evil! (It would be fun if somebody were to do a similar effort with villainous women characters.)
Which screen villains? Various as played by Sean Bean, Richard Armitage, Jason Isaacs, Alan Rickman, Rutger Hauer, Keanu Reaves, Pierce Brosnan, Gerard Butler, and more.
Bonus bonus (because this is what happens when you google stuff): a photo of Eartha Kitt and James Dean in dance class (and here’s another one).
