The Boy Friend

Album: The Boy Friend (1954)
  • songfacts ®
  • The title song from this 1950s musical set in 1920s France is about boyfriends in general rather than any particular boyfriend, although in the case of Polly Brown, he doesn't actually exist. It is sung by Polly and the girls, and also by a number of boys as a dance number. Like all the songs in the original show, it was written by Sandy Wilson. >>
