I hope the film is released
18 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There wasn't a Broadway cast album due to a union dispute, and Frank Loesser's widow Jo Sullivan won't let the film be released because she didn't like it. (Wikipedia) I want to hear Ray Bolger sing "Once in Love with Amy," too. There's a Decca recording of Ray Bolger singing it--"Center Stage: Broadway 1947-1958"

Once in love with Amy, always in love with Amy

Ever and ever fascinated by her, sets your heart on fire to stay.

Once you're kissed by Amy, tear up your list it's Amy

Ply her with bonbons, poetry, and flowers, moon a million hours away.

You might be quite the fickle-hearted rover so carefree and bold

Who loves a girl and later thinks it over and just quits cold.

But once in love with Amy, always in love with Amy

Ever and ever sweetly you'll romance her, trouble is the answer will be

That Amy'd rather stay in love with me.

But once in love with Amy, always in love with Amy

Ever and ever sweetly you'll romance her, trouble is the answer will be

That Amy'd rather stay in love with me.
