  • Lyrics
  • This Irving Berlin number was the title song of the 1954 20th Century Fox musical, although it was written originally for Annie Get Your Gun. In the former it was performed most memorably by Ethel Merman – the lady with the voice! In a 1977 interview which also featured Mary Martin, Merman said the song summed up her life. >>
