An effusive expression of affection, “You’re My Everything” has its origins as the hit song of of a 1931-1932 two-act Broadway revue entitled The Laugh Parade, produced by and starring Ed Wynn, a comedian who twenty years later would provide the voice for the Mad Hatter in Disney’s Alice in Wonderland. The music for the play was composed by Harry Warren, with lyrics provided by Mort Dixon and Joe Young. It was French actress Jeanne Aubert and American actor Lawrence Gray who introduced the signature tune.
You're my everything underneath the sun You're my everything rolled up into one You're my only dream, my only real reality You're my idea of a perfect personality
You're my everything, everything I need You're the song I sing and the book I read You're a way beyond belief and just to make it brief You're my winter, summer, spring; my everything.
