Justin Sayre: "Look What Happened to Mabel." One of my favorite Jerry Herman songs ever, maybe because I often refer to myself as Miss Waitress from Flatbush. The lyrics are fantastic: "The girl with the pickles who hustled for nickels," it doesn't get better than that. And, it's so perfectly Bernadette — the voice, the sly "cuteness," and the belt. Rattle Me Beads.
