How About You?

Album: Babes On Broadway (1941)
  • When a girl meets boy
    Life can be a joy
    But the note they end on
    Will depend on little pleasures they will share
    So let us compare

    I like New York in June, how about you?
    I like a Gershwin tune, how about you?
    I love a fireside when a storm is due
    I like potato chips, moonlight and motor trips
    How about you?

    I'm mad about good books, can't get my fill
    And Franklin Roosevelt's looks give me a thrill
    Holding hands in the movie show
    When all the lights are low
    May not be new, but I like it
    How about you?

    I love to dream of fame, maybe I'll shine
    I'd like to see your name right beside mine
    I can see we're in harmony
    Looks like we both agree
    On what to do
    And I like it, how about you? Writer/s: Burton Lane, Ralph Freed
