Nancy Kwan Quotes:

Linda Low: [singing] I'm a girl and by me that's only great, I am proud that my silhouette is curvy. / That I walk with a sweet and girlish gait with my hips kind of swively and swirly. / I enjoy being dressed in something frilly when my date comes to get me at my place, / Out I go with my Joe or John or Billy like a filly who is ready for the race. / When I have a brand new hairdo with my eye lashes all in curl, / I float as the clouds on air do, I enjoy being a girl. / When men say I'm cute and funny and my teeth aren't teeth but pearl, / I just lap it out like honey, I enjoy being a girl. / I flip when a fellow sends me flowers, I drool over dresses made of lace, / I talk on the telephone for hours with a pound and a half of cream upon my face. / I'm strictly a female female and my future I hope will be / In the home of a brave and free male who'll enjoy being a guy having a girl like me.

Linda Low: [singing] Grant Avenue, San Francisco, California, U.S.A. / Looks down from Chinatown over a foggy bay./ You travel there in a trolley, in a trolley there up you climb. / Dong! Dong! You're in Hong Kong, having yourself a time. / You can eat, if you are in the mood.
Chorus: [singing] Shark-fin soup, bean cake fish.
Linda Low: [singing] The girl who serves you all your food is another tasty dish.
Chorus: [singing] You know you.
Linda Low: [singing] You can't have a new way of living till you're living all the way on / Grand Avenue.
Chorus: Where's that?
Linda Low: [singing] San Francisco. That's where's that! California USA.

[last lines]
Mei Li: [singing] A hundred million miracles.
Linda Low: [singing] A hundred million miracles.
All Cast: [singing] A hundred million miracles. a hundred million miracles are happening everyday.
