Lyrics:Betty Comden ,Adolph Green Music:Jule Styne
The song was publishe 1960.
This lovely song was written for a 1960's musical "Do Re Mi." It was a newer song than I thought.
The plot centers on a minor-league con man who decides to go (somewhat) straight by going into the business of juke boxes and music promotion. The musical introduced the popular songs "Cry Like the Wind" and "Make Someone Happy".
Make someone happy, Make just one someone happy; Make just one heart; the heart you sing to. One smile that cheers you, One face that lights when it nears you, One girl you're ev'rything to.
Fame if you win it, Comes and goes in a minute. Where's the real stuff in life to cling to? Love is the answer, Someone to love is the answer. Once you've found her, build your world around her.
Make someone happy, Make just one someone happy, And you will be happy, too.
