PERSONALITY From the film "The Road To Utopia" (Lyrics: Johnny Burke / Music: Jimmy Van Heusen) Dorothy Lamour (Film Soundtrack) - 1945 Johnny Mercer & The Pied Pipers - 1945 Bing Crosby - 1946 Dinah Shore - 1946 Pearl Bailey - 1946 Shani Wallis - 1960 Steve Lawrence & Eydie Gorme - 1961 Ann-Margret & Al Hirt - 1964 Also recorded by: DelRubio Triplets; Joe Derise; Dick Haymes; Lynda Jamison; Glen Gary; Bobby Gordon; Mary Cleere Haran; Lee Morgan; Maxine Sullivan ........... and others. As performed by DOROTHY LAMOUR in the film "Road To Utopia" (1945): Mary Smith had a college education Sally Jones had a scientific streak Susie Brown used to lecture on ancient architecture Josie Green spoke Latin and Greek Just forgotten girls with forgotten brains While history explains ..... When Madam Pompadour was on a ballroom floor Said all the gentlemen, "Obviously, The madam has the cutest personality" And think of all the books about Du Barry's looks What was it made her the toast of Paree She had a well-developed personality And what did Romeo see in Juliet Or Pierrot in Pierrette Or Jupiter in Juno You know! And when Salome danced and had the boys entranced No doubt it must have been easy to see That she knew how to use her personality A girl can learn to spell and take dictation well And never sit on the boss's settee Unless she's got a perfect personality A girl can get somewhere in spite of stringy hair Or even just a bit bowed at the knees If she can show a faultless personality And why are certain girls offered carriages And sable coats and marriages By men who wear their spats right That's right! So don'tcha say I'm smart and have the kindest heart Or what a wonderful sister I'd be Just tell me how you like my personality Personality! ******************** As recorded by JOHNNY MERCER & THE PIED PIPERS: When Madam Pompadour was on a ballroom floor Said all the gentlemen, "Obviously, The madam has the cutest personality" And think of all the books about Du Barry's looks What was it made her the toast of Paree She had a well-developed personality (What did Romeo see in Juliet) (Or Pierrot in Pierrette) (Or Jupiter in Juno) You know!
