Children play with the dreams of tomorrow. And old men play with the memories of yesterday
Here's to the beautiful ladies / Here's to those wonderful girls / Adele's and Molly's, Lucille's and Polly's / You'll find them all at the Ziegfeld Follies.
Love can be a cup of sorrow, Love can be a lie. / Love can make you wake tomorrow and sigh.
And then someone comes into view / And suddenly you find it's true / That love is beauty too.
Bring on the wonderful men, bring me an elegant guy, a solider or tailor,a Gable or a Taylor
Almost any man I see is the only man for me
