And the oboe it is clearly understood
Is an ill wind that no one blows good (more…)

When your heart is full of love you’re nine feet tall.

Friendly old girl of a town
‘Neath her tavern light

Singing Copenhagen, wonderful, wonderful
Copenhagen for me (more…)

I’m Hans Christian Andersen

Song lyrics to I’m Hans Christian Andersen from the movie Hans Christian Andersen starring Danny Kaye, music and lyrics by Frank Loesser

I’m Hans Christian Andersen,
I’ve many a tale to tell
And though I’m a cobbler,
I’d say I tell them rather well
I’ll mend your shoes and I’ll fix your boot
when I have a moment free
when I’m not otherwise occupied
as a purple duck, or a mountain side,
or a quarter after three
I’m Hans Christian Andersen,
Andersen, that’s me! (more…)

“Your Majesty, to a wise man this is a beautiful raiment
but to a fool it is absolutely invisible.”
Naturally, the King not wanting to appear a fool, said: (more…)

And the other birds in so many words said,
Get out of town
Get out, get out, get out of town
And he went with a quack and a waddle and a quack
In a flurry of eiderdown. (more…)
