When I'm Out With The Belle Of New York
From the M-G-M Picture "The Belle Of New York"
Words by Johnny Mercer
Music by Harry Warren
Lillian Russell is fabulous fair,
So is the girl on that sign over there;
Ah, but to capture the maid of my heart
Challenges ev'ry photographer's art.
Charles Dana Gibson would even agree
No Stage-door John holds a candle to me.
When I'm out with the Belle of New York,
With the beautiful Belle of New York,
Ev'ry person we meet, like the cop on the beat
Leaves whatever he's doing and crosses the street;
It's a beautiful sight after dark,
When we're strolling through Grammercy Park;
The stars in her eyes and the moon up above
Just fill me with oceans and oceans of love,
And my heart bobs around like a cork
When I'm out with the Belle of New York.
