about

There's just something so musical in the last line of Tennessee William's play "Streetcar Named Desire." As she's being taken away to a mental hospital, Blanche DuBois says, "I have always depended on the kindness of strangers."

Down and dirty, check out Carson Wahl's amazing trumpet solo.

lyrics

How does it feel to be real on the south side of Elysian Fields?
Caught up in dream it would seem like just another one of her deals.

She acts so fine all the time
Like a southern belle that's never been rung
Sister Stella now watch your fella
Her fantasy is coming undone

She ain't looking for no Prince Charming
Or someone disarming like you
She don't need herself no kind of manly
But a substitute Stanley for a minute or two

She says, I get by, I rely on the kindness of strangers
I get by, I rely on the kindness of strangers.

Don't bet the farm on her charm
It's a sad, sad tale to be spun
Teacher won't you tell me a love story
Have a little drink and think up one

She ain't looking for no Prince Charming
Or someone disarming like you
She don't need herself no kind of manly
But a substitute Stanley for a minute or two

She says, I get by, I rely on the kindness of strangers
I always try, I rely on the kindness of strangers.
