Act ii opens with the newly wed fanny and nick arriving at their home in long island
Fanny's friends have prepared a surprise party for them. ziegfeld is there, hoping
Fanny will be in his new show; he's even hired her friend eddie as dance director
Fanny's ziegfeld friends ask her what it's like be married and she replies:

Fanny:
I'm sadie, sadie, married lady
Bow when I go by
I'm a corporation now
Not me, myself and I
Oh how that marriage license works
On chambermaids and hotel clerks
The honeymoon was such delight
That we got married that same night
I'm sadie, sadie, married lady
Still in bed at noon
Racking my brain deciding
Between orange juice and prune
Nick says nothing is too good for me
And who am I not to agree?
I'm sadie, sadie, married lady, that's me
All:
She's sadie, sadie, married lady
Fanny:
Meet a mortgagee
All:
The owner of an icebox
Fanny:
With a ten-year guarantee
Oh, sit me in the softest seat
Quick, a cushion for my feet
Do for me, buy for me, lift me, carry me
Finally got a guy to marry me
I do my nails

Read up on sales
All day the records play
Then he comes home, I tell him
Oy--what a day I had today
I swear I'll do my wifely job
Just sit at home--become a slob
I'm sadie, sadie, married lady, that's me
All:
She's sadie, sadie, married lady
Boys:
Sadie, you did the trick
Fanny:
It's nothing
Girls:
Not ev'ry girl can get herself
A guy who looks like nick
Fanny:
Wait, to tell the truth, it hurt my pride
The groom was prettier than the bride
All:
Sadie, sadie, married lady
Fanny:
Husband, house, a mortgage, a baby
All:
Sadie, sadie, married lady
Fanny:
That's who?
All:
That's you
Fanny:
That's me--married lady
All:
Say hello to ziegfeld's married lady--sadie
