This biographic musical film was based on the life of
actress Gertrude Lawrence.
If the lady's naughty but proper
If the lady's chicer than chic
If her escorts must wear a topper
And each man's the man of the week
If she rides around in a brand new foreign car
The chances are, the lady's a star.
If the lady's utterly charming
If the lady's chummy with kings
If her whims are close to alarming
And it's known she's thrown a few things
If they've got a drink with her name in Jilly's Bar
The chances, are the lady's a star.
If her smallest party is really extensive
With tons of expensive caviar.
If the lady is someone with the same credentials
Someone with the same essentials
Someone who is worshipped from afar
She's a genuine, positive, totally, marvelous, perfectly, wonderful
She's a great big, a great big star.
