sung here by Jack Buchanan and Gertrude Lawrence. Lawrence was a singer and dancer and actress, much active on the stage and perhaps best known for her Tony Award-winning performance opposite Yul Brynner in the initial 1951 Broadway run of The King and I. Her run was short because of rapidly deteriorating health, and she died of cancer on September 6 a year and a half after it opened.
Lyrics excerpt from her part in the video embedded above:
If it is because you can't afford more sandwiches and coffee, we will share.Join the fun at the weekly T Tuesday gathering at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog and share a drink with us.
But if it's to help you save and hoard more, I can stand to see how much you care.
Now if I were you flirting with me my advice would be:
I've got a thousand and nothing to do.
I'd like to lend it or spend it on you.
