The song was introduced in the musical of the same name in 1930, and has since become a pop and jazz standard. A take-off using the same chord structure but a different melodic line was recorded by Woody Herman and called "Keen and Peachy". Barbra Streisand recorded it in 1964 for her album, People.
Please forgive this platitude But I like your attitude You are just the kind I've had in mind Never could find Honey, I'm so keen on you I could come to lean on you On a random bay give you your way Do what you say
Gee, it's all fine and dandy Sugar candy When I've got you
Then I only see the sunny side Even trouble has it's funny side
When you're gone, my sugar candy I get so lonesome, I get so blue But when you're handy It's fine and dandy But when you're gone What can I do?
