How About You ?

Lyrics:Ralph Freed
Music:Burton Lane

The song was publishe 1941.

It was introduced in the 1941 film Babes on Broadway by Judy Garland
and Mickey Rooney and has also featured in The Fisher King
with Robin Williams.
Richard Dreyfuss hums and sings part of the song in The Goodbye Girl.
Anne Bancroft sings it in Don't Bother to Knock (1952).
The music of the song appears in the film All About Eve (1950).

The lyrics of the song are often changed depending on the recording artist.
In its original form it is a humorous romantic duet,
though rarely has it been recorded that way.
Certain lyrics, especially those with topical references,
are often changed based on the time of the performance's release.
For example, the line "Franklin Roosevelt's looks give me a thrill"
was changed to "James Durante's looks" in a fifties recording by Sinatra,
though he did sing it in its original form with Dorsey back in the forties.

All About Eve

When a girl meets boy
Life can be a joy
But the note they end on
Will depend on little pleasures they will share
So let us compare

I like New York in June, how about you?
I like a Gershwin tune, how about you?
I love a fireside when a storm is due.
I like potato chips, moonlight motor trips, how about you?

I'm mad about good books, can't get my fill
And James Durante's* looks give me a thrill
Holding hands in the movie show, when all the lights are low
May not be new, but I like it, how about you?

I'd love to dream of fame, maybe I'll shine
I'd love to see your name right beside mine
I can see we're in harmony
Looks like we both agree
On what to do, and I like it
How about you?
