The funny lady takes on the Funny Girl.

In an exclusive video from the new documentary American Masters: The Boomer List, airing Tuesday on PBS (9 p.m. ET), Rosie O'Donnell hilariously channels Barbra Streisand.

"The record my mother loved the most was A Happening in Central Park," says O'Donnell, launching into "Marty the Martian" and "Second Hand Rose" a la Streisand. "She loved I could sort of do the accent."

Continues The View's cohost: "I always kinda talked like that, like Barbra Streisand did. Oh, my god. Can you believe it?"

O'Donnell is one of 19 baby boomers interviewed in filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders's documentary, which honors the last baby boomers turning 50 this year.
