Sand in My Shoes-- sung by Connee Boswell in Kiss the Boys Goodbye     ?

Shutoo-- As they said, you're too marvelous for words! 

 I never heard Connee Boswell sing that song, nor have I seen the movie, but Bobby Short " informed " me about it. LOL

Shutoo, You're on--

Thanks Princess!  

This is from a fun song you'll probably know right away!

"You're the kind of cat, wears a sharp cravat"

It's "Please Don't Monkey With Broadway".  It was written by Cole Porter and is performed by Fred Astaire and George Murphy in "Broadway Melody Of 1940".

 

Princess, did you ever use a cane as a prop while tap dancing?

Next:  "Never saw you look quite so pretty before"

Miles, when I was 13 my dance instructor made me do a recital number with a tap-baton twirl and I just hated it.

But she said the audience always liked a little gimmick and they did like it.

But, she was one of those people who did roller skate-tap so what can you say...

" Never saw you look quite so handsome what's more

I can hardly wait to keep our date this lovely Easter morning--"

Fred and Judy with the Easter Parade--

 

Next: " At any gambling casino from Monte Carlo to Reno "

More lyrics from the same song:

When the electromagnetic of the he-male
Meets the electromagnetic of the female,
If right away she should say, "This is the male!"

Even though this is the film version of a B'way play, some of the lyrics in this song were altered..even the title has a change of one word...40's film...

Shutoo--

Thanks for that hint. But I still need another one, s'IL Vous plaît.

Your hint about information from the show was good-- giving away More Lyrics Just defeats the point of the whole thread.

I'm afraid my clue was misleading..this song didn't appear in the original b'way show in the 20's, but did appear in a later production..and some lyrics were different..as was the first word of the title...
