I’m breaking my back putting up a front for you

I’m breaking my back putting up a front for you – song lyrics, as performed by Desi Arnaz on the I Love Lucy episode, The Amateur Hour

I bought a 12 room house, a mountain lodge, a lemon yellow Cadillac, in a blue garage,
(chorus)
I’ma breaking my back putting up a front for you,
I bought an airplane, It’s just for kicks, holds twice as many passengers as a DC6,
I’ma breaking my back putting up a front for you,
Ohh say my heart goes bang babe, when I look at you sister I’m gone,
Oh get the hang babe if my bank account’s overdrawn,
I’m getting pedicures and manicures, just ever since I took a look at that pan of yours,
I’m breaking my back putting up a front for you,
I own a private train, It’s pure gold leaf, on Friday nights I hook it onto the Super Chief,
I’m breaking my back putting up a front for you,
I gotta French valet, a camp de aide, a very famous movie star, is my upstairs maid,
Breaking my back putting up a front for you,
Oh say, my heart goes bang baby, when I look at you sister I choke,
Who gives a hang babe, I’m a Cuban whose gotta go broke,
I bought a diamond ring, worth 20 grand, but I would gladly trade it in for a wedding band,
I’m a breaking my back putting up a front for you, oh breaking my back putting up a front for you,
