Subject: Lyrics: I'M WILD ABOUT HARRY?
From: GARYD
Date: 05 Dec 98 - 05:50 PM

There is an incredibly nice benefactor named Harry, who has given a great deal of money to our local Jammers just because he likes our music. He is throwing us a party in appreciation. What I'd like to do is to show him we appreciate HIM by singing the song from way back when.. Any help with this?... Thanks, Gary

Piece of cake, Gary.......Tiger

I'm Just Wild About Harry
Words and Music by Noble Sissle and Eubie Blake
Copyright 1921 by M. Witmark & Sons.

There's just one fellow for me in this world
Harry's his name, that's what I claim
Why for ev'ry fellow there must be a girl
I've found my mate, by kindness of fate.

    CHORUS
    I'm just wild about Harry
    And Harry's wild about me.
    The heav'nly blisses of his kisses
    Fill me with ecstasy
    He's sweet just like chocolate candy,
    And just like honey from the bee
    Oh, I'm just wild about Harry
    And he's just wild about, cannot do without,
    He's just wild about me.

There are some fellows that like all the girls,
I mean the vamps, with cruel lamps,
But my Harry says I'm the girl of all girls,
I'm his ideal, how happy I feel.

    CHORUS

If any other Threadies think that this song is about me, it's not.

When Eubie Blake was in his 80's he said "If I'd known I was going to live so long I'd have looked after myself better!"

I thought you'd like me to share that with you.

Steve

Given the brouhaha about the Royals-Tabloids-Harry/Megan chatter, this song could perhaps use a contemporary uplift.
