Attentive -- and perhaps unusually forgiving -- readers may recall that of late, for reasons we needn't get into, I've been using old episodes of the Jack Benny radio show as a sleeping aid.
And that I have unaccountably developed a huge fondness for the Irish tenor song stylings of Dennis Day as a result.
Okay, I know I said I wouldn't inflict another Day song on you again, but I heard this one -- from a 1942 show -- last night and found myself thinking it was really sweet and really funny.
I hope you agree.
And okay, this time I PROMISE YOU I WON'T DO IT AGAIN.
I'm not kidding, honest.
I should add, BTW, that the song was co-written by the great Jule Styne, who had more substantial success writing "People" and the entire score of Funny Girl. Just saying.
