BILL Jerome Kern (m) P G Wodehouse (l) 1927 fr "Show Boat" musical '27 New York '28 London filmed '29 '36 '51 as rec by Shirley Bassey w Michael Collins & his Orch August 31st 1959 I used to dream that I would discover The perfect lover some day; I knew I'd recognise him If ever he came my way. I always used to fancy that He'd be one of the god-like kind of men, With a giant brain and a noble head, Like the heroes bold in the books I've read! But along came Bill, who's not the type at all, You'd meet him on the street and never notice him! His form and face, His manly grace, Is not the kind that you would find in a statue! And I can't explain, It's surely not his brain That makes me thrill! I love him because he's wonderful, Because he's just my Bill! And yet to be Upon his knee, So comfy and roomy Feels natural to me! And I can't explain, It's surely not his brain That makes me thrill! I love him because he's, I don't know, Because he's just my Bill! (Contributed by Peter Akers - January 2011)
