SING A HAPPY SONG TODAY
Deanna Durbin 1947
Sung in the film FOR THE LOVE OF MARY 1947
Director: Frederick De Cordova
Leads: Deanna Durbin/Edmond O'Brien/Don Taylor
This film was Deanna Durbin's swansong.
I'm carefree, oh so carefree
And my heart is in the holiday mood
It's glowing, overflowing
With a feeling that can't be subdued.
I'm cheerful, never fearful
Of the foolish world and all of it's faults
I'm captured and enraptured
To the strings of a Viennese waltz.
My heart is flying high
On the wings of a song
Bluebirds are trailing as I go sailing along
LIfe is a melody and the words are bright and gay
Sadness passes me by, gladness captures my eye
So no wonder why I, sing a happy song today.
