I'M IN LOVE WITH A WONDERFUL GUY from "South Pacific" musical 1949 New York 1951 London sung by Mary Martin also 1958 film sung by Mitzi Gaynor (Richard Rodgers (m) Oscar Hammerstein II (l) 1949) as recorded by Doris Day with Axel Stordahl & his Orchestra 1960 also recorded by - Mary Martin with Salvatore Dell'Isola's Orchestra & Chorus (stage) '49 Dinah Shore '49 Margaret Whiting with Frank De Vol & his Orchestra '49 Fred Waring's Pennsylvanians '50 & '58 Ted Heath & his Music (vocal - Lita Roza) '51 The Oscar Peterson Trio with Nelson Riddle & his Orchestra '64 I expect everyone Of my crowd to make fun Of my proud protestations of faith in romance! And you'll say I'm naive As a babe to believe Any fable I hear from a person in pants! I've been known to share your satirical attitude, Thinking that love could be kept in its place, Till all of a sudden that lyrical platitude Bounced up and hit me smack in the face! That's how I turned out to be The happy young woman you see. I'm as corny as Kansas in August, I'm as normal as blueberry pie. No more a smart little girl with no heart, I have found me a wonderful guy! I am in a conventional dither, With a conventionial star in my eye. And you will note There's a lump in my throat When I speak of that wonderful guy. I'm as trite and as gay As a daisy in May, A cliche comin' true! I'm bromidic, and bright As a moon happy night Pouring light on the dew. I'm as corny as Kansas in August, High as a flag on the fourth of July. If you'll excuse An expression I use, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love with a wonderful guy! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - September 2013) *********************** I'M IN LOVE WITH A WONDERFUL GUY From the Movie 'South Pacific' 1958 Mary Martin Mitzi Gaynor Nellie: I expect everyone of my crowd to make fun Of my proud protestations of faith in romance, And they'll say I'm naïve as a babe to believe Every fable I hear from a person in pants. Fearlessly I'll face them and argue their doubts away, Loudly I'll sing about flowers in spring, Flatly I'll stand on my little flat feet and say Love is a grand and a beautiful thing! I'm not ashamed to reveal The world famous feelin' I feel. I'm as corny as Kansas in August, I'm as normal as blueberry pie. No more a smart little girl with no heart, I have found me a wonderful guy! I am in a conventional dither, With a conventional star in my eye. And you will note there's a lump in my throat When I speak of that wonderful guy! I'm as trite and as gay as a daisy in May, A cliché comin' true! I'm bromidic and bright As a moon-happy night Pourin' light on the dew! I'm as corny as Kansas in August, High as a flag on the Fourth of July! If you'll excuse an expression I use, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love with a wonderful guy! I'm as trite and as gay as a daisy in May, A cliché comin' true! I'm bromidic and bright As a moon-happy night Pourin' light on the dew! Girls I'm as corny as Kansas in August, High as a flag on the Fourth of July! Nellie: If you'll excuse an expression I use, I'm in love, Girls I'm in love, Nellie: I'm in love, Girls I'm in love, Nellie: I'm in love, Girls I'm in love, Nellie: I'm in love, Girls I'm in love, Nellie: I'm in love, Girls I'm in love, Nellie: I'm in love, Girls I'm in love, Nellie and Girls I'm in love with a wonderful guy!
