Did You Know?
After nearly 10 years, Harry Warren
, on loan from MGM, returned to write new songs for a Warner Bros. musical.(Ralph Blane
was the lyricist.) For old time's sake, the score interpolated three Harry Warren
standards for Doris Day
to sing: "Nagasaki," lyrics by Mort Dixon
; "I'll String Along with You," original lyrics by Al Dubin
, "lullaby" lyrics by Ralph Blane
; and "You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby," lyrics by Johnny Mercer
. This film was a remake of Twenty Million Sweethearts
(1934), which had featured, among the tunes by Warren and Dubin, "I'll String Along with You," sung first as a Dick Powell
solo, then as a duet by Mr. Powell and Ginger Rogers
. For her disc on Columbia Records, Doris Day
teamed with Buddy Clark
to croon "I'll String Along with You." See more

Could I have her name and address, please?
We can't give out that information. This is a music company. Not a lonelyhearts club.
