I KNEW HIM WHEN Harold Arlen (m) Ira Gershwin (l) E Y "Yip" Harburg (l) as rec by Liza Minnelli 1964 I knew him when He bought me violets now and then. I knew him when The ring he wore was purchased at the "Five and Ten". I knew him when we used to ride on top of a bus, And dream of that someday flat; And then the date For dinner at eight At the automat! So that's the boy whose name is up in blazing lights, That's all there is; The boy made good, but local girl is still in tights, There is no more! Together when the going was rough, He recognised me then; Sister, it's tough when you knew them when! (Contributed by Peter Akers - April 2009)
