Almost any man I see is the only man for me
Bring on the wonderful men, bring me an elegant guy, a solider or tailor,a Gable or a Taylor
And then someone comes into view / And suddenly you find it`s true / That love is beauty too.
Love can be a cup of sorrow, Love can be a lie. / Love can make you wake tomorrow and sigh.
Here`s to the beautiful ladies / Here`s to those wonderful girls / Adele`s and Molly`s, Lucille`s and Polly`s / You`ll find them all at the Ziegfeld Follies.
Children play with the dreams of tomorrow. And old men play with the memories of yesterday
