(Hey) Fancy Pants!

  • songfacts ®
  • Written by the team of Jay Livingston and Ray Evans, "(Hey) Fancy Pants!" is the title song of the 1950 comedy Western Fancy Pants in which it is sung to the unlikely hero Bob Hope by his leading lady Lucille Ball, although her voice was dubbed by Annette Warren. The song is thematic, but the film is far stronger, thanks to Hope's typical deadpan patter.
  • The sheet music was published by Paramount Music Corporation of New York. >>
