Now, before this modern idea had burstAbout the women and children first,The men had much more charm than they have today.And if only one of that type survived,The very moment that he arrived,I know I'd fall in love in a great big way.I can't imagine being badWith any Arrow collar ad,Nor could I take the slightest joyIn waking up a college boy.I've no desire to be aloneWith Rudy Vallee's megaphone,So when I'm saying my prayers, I say:Find me a primitive man,Built on a primitive plan.....There's AC and DC but this girl craves B.C.!From : "Fifty Million Frenchmen, 1929" (Cole Porter)
Didn't they insert that song into the movie version of On the Town, too? Or what song did Ann Miller do in it?These are neat. The second one reminds me of a character actor who was busy in the forties and fifties whose name now escapes me. A real NYC type.
Anne Miller performed "Prehistoric man" in "On the Town" Lyrics by Adolph Green and Betty Comden. See: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AM4L38u5vpE
ilduce, you're positively lyrical!
William Bendix! I finally had to look it up because it was killing me. He was the injured man in Hitchcock's Lifeboat.
Yes! Although, I think Mr. Bendix was considerably less buffed.
