Call Me Irresponsible

Lyrics:Sammy Cahn
Music:Jimmy Van Heusen

The song was publishe 1962.

According to the Mel Tormé book
The Other Side of the Rainbow with Judy Garland on the Dawn Patrol,
Van Heusen originally wrote the song for Garland to sing at a CBS dinner.
At that time, Garland had just signed to do The Judy Garland Show on CBS,
and the intent of the song was to parody her well-known problems.
Garland later sang the song on the seventh episode of the show.

However, in 1988, Sammy Cahn said during an interview with freelance writer Harlan Conti,
in San Francisco, that the song was originally written for Fred Astaire
to sing in the film Papa's Delicate Condition in which Astaire was to star.
Cahn personally auditioned the song for Astaire's approval,
which was given.
However, Astaire's contractual obligations prevented him from making
the film and the role went to Jackie Gleason, who introduced the song.
It won the Academy Award for Best Original Song
at the 36th Academy Awards held in 1964.

Papa's Delicate Condition 

Since I'm always making resolutions
Seems every night for me is New Year's eve
Things they chisel on those institutions
These lofty thoughts I've never quite achieved
Each time I take a bow when everything went well
Things go alright and there am I saying I meant well

Call me irresponsible, call me unreliable
Throw in undependable too
Do my foolish alibis bore you
Well, I'm not too clever, I just adore you

Call me unpredictable, tell me I'm impractical
Rainbows, I'm inclined to pursue
Call me irresponsible, yes, I'm unreliable
But it's undeniably true
I'm irresponsibly mad for you

Call me irresponsible, yes, I'm unreliable
But it's undeniably true
I'm irresponsibly mad for you
