"Some of These Days"

Ninety-nine years ago today, Sophie Tucker, the "last of the red hot mamas," recorded "Some of These Days," which would become one of her signature songs. Sophie Tucker, the iconic Jewish American vaudeville and cinema star, is one of the women featured in Making Trouble, JWA's film about funny Jewish women. 

"Some of These Days" (chorus)

Some of these days
you'll be so lonely
some of these days
you'll miss me honey
you'll miss my huggin'
you're gonna miss my kissin'
you're gonna miss me honey
when I'm far away.
I feel so lonely
for you only
'cause you know honey
you've had your way
when you leave me
you know its gonna grieve me
Gonna miss your big fat mama
your mama
some of these days

I do miss you, Sophie. Today is one of those days.
