[sings this to the tune of It Had to Be You]
It had to be me that had to get you. I stand 5 foot 10, a man among men, but you're 7'2. I meet lots of girls when I make the rounds, but none are like you 7 foot 2, 70 pounds, but you make me thrill and you always will. I realize Betty you look like spaghetti, but what can I do? It's your fingertips that I adore; when you stand up they touch the floor. It had to be you, wonderful you, 7 foot 2.

I saw this film a few years ago on AMC. It was fun. A piece of wholesome, corny family entertainment, which incidentally reminded one of just how literate,popular songs used to be. I was amazed by how many "standards"-My Buddy, Carolina in the Morning,etc., were written by Mr. Kahn
