Smile And Show Your Dimple

Album: released as a single (1918)
  • This quaintly titled song in 4/4 time was written by Irving Berlin and was published by Waterson, Berlin & Snyder Co of New York in 1917. Recorded the following year by the vaudeville actor and singer Sam Ash, it flopped, but after Berlin had rewritten the melody slightly and put entirely new lyrics to it, the song became a hit as "Easter Parade." >>
