Just in Time

Lyrics:Betty Comden ,Adolph Green
Music:Jule Styne

The song was publishe 1956.

The show in question was Bells Are Ringing which opened on Broadway
in 1956 and ran for a record breaking 926 performances.
It starred recent Oscar winner Judy Holliday (Born Yesterday)
and Sydney Chaplin.
According to Thomas S. Hischak in
The American Musical Theatre Song Encyclopedia,
“Just in Time” was introduced by Chaplin who “sang it in a lighthearted song
and dance style in Central Park to entertain passersby.
Styne’s melody is perhaps the simplest he ever wrote,
being basically confined to only two notes until the release,
but it became one of his most famous songs.”
In addition, the show featured another hit song,
“The Party’s Over,” sung by Holliday.

Bells Are Ringing

Bells Are Ringing(1960)

I was resting comfortably, face down in the gutter
Life was serene, I knew where I was at
"There's no hope for him," my dearest friends would mutter
I was something dragged in by the cat. Then ...

Just in time
I found you just in time
Before you came my time
Was running low
I was lost
The losing dice were tossed
My bridges all were crossed
Nowhere to go

Now you're here
And now I know just where I'm going
No more doubt or fear
'Cause I found my way
For love came just in time
You found me just in time
And saved my lonely life
That lovely day
