"Lover Come Back" Doris Day 1961 Universal Pictures
When I was just a little girl, I asked my mother,
What will I be,
Will I be pretty ?
Will I be rich ?
Here's what she said to me,
Che Sera, Sera,
Whatever will be will be....
When I was just a little girl
I was in the school basement
At recess one day,
And I was singing.
And the smartest girl in my class,
Molly Katz, said,
"You sing like Doris Day ! "
Molly Katz was the smartest girl,
But she could not have known
What a profound influence
Her compliment
Would have on my life.
Today, Doris Day at age 87,
Has issued a new record album.
And all her life,
She has been saving animals.
Doris Day was, and still is,
The quintessential model
Of beauty and goodness
We need in the world.
