Briefly Lyrical

Okay, to recap the song is from a 1940's Samuel Goldwyn production.

Next hint:  The title of the song is the same as a much more famous Cole Porter song that was written for a big Broadway hit of his about 3 years after this movie came out.

Well, because of the Wanda Jackson clue, I thought Let's Have a Party..so I thought Connie Francis in Looking for Love, but that's a different song...so then I thought Elvis (had to look up film) in Loving You, but when I watched the clip of it...the opening is different and he doesn't say this line...so is there a film where Wanda Jackson sang it?

Shutoo--  Loving You is a great film for Elvis's first star outing because it shows a Southern country singer working his way up on the Carney circuit. "Party" is one of the montage songs that demonstrates the rise of Elvis's character Deke Rivers.  You may have to go through two or three Clips before you get to the one where he uses the lyrics I cited.  And those are the lyrics used on the soundtrack recording.

BTW-- I don't know if you're an Elvis fan, but if you haven't seen this film all the way through you will truly enjoy it, not just for his fabulous music, but Lizabeth Scott is quite good too.

Shutoo-- "Send them to the store and let's buy some more and let's have a party tonight." You're up!

Thanks Princess..it's been a long time since I'd seen that Elvis film, and I could only find one clip to jog my memory.

next: "And I fill the bed with nutshells and crumbs"

I'm afraid this was a little obscure...I'll give you the line that precedes it, and I bet someone will know:

"I eat litchi nuts and cookies in bed"

I had a hunch, checked it out and I was right.  It's Rumble Rumble Rumble, sung by Betty Hutton in The Perils of Pauline.  Here's the clip, but you have to wait until almost the end to hear the quoted line:
