Danny Kaye songs
Stanislavsky song lyrics – performed by Danny Kaye on his radio show
Who is the world’s greatest actor?
And how did I get that way?
Who made me a genius, the greatest projector
Who ever wore a toupee?
Who made me most miserable Hamlet
The deadest Romeo who died for his bride?
Who made me most awful Dr. Jekyll?
And then made me Hyde?

Tongue Twisters as recorded by Danny Kaye
Tongue Twisters, written by: Adolph Green, Betty Comden, Roger Edens
No, not the pellet with the poison – a different set of tongue twisters, as recorded by Danny Kaye
Everybody’s heard of Peter Piper
And the peck of pickled peppers that he picked
That’s such a silly simple children’s game
It hasn’t even got a name
But I’d like to bet that it’ll trip you
And I bet you’re gonna have to say you’re licked
If Peter Piper you pronounce with ease
Then twist your tongue around these
Moses supposes his toeses are roses
But Moses supposes erroneously
For Moses he knowses his toeses aren’t roses
As Moses supposes his toeses to be
That’s tongue twisters (more…)
Song lyrics to Anatole of Paris, written by Sylvia Fine, sung by Danny Kaye in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
It all began when I was born a month too soon
My ma was frightened by a runaway saloon
Pa was forced to be a hobo
Because he played the oboe
And the oboe it is clearly understood
Is an ill wind that no one blows good (more…)

Hans Christian Andersen (Danny Kaye): No two people have ever been so in love, been so in love, been so in love
Doro (JeanMarie): No two people have ever been so in love, as my lovey dove and I
Hans Christian Andersen (Danny Kaye): No two people have ever mooned such a moon, Juned such a June, spooned such a spoon

Song lyrics to Thumbelina, sung by Danny Kaye in the movie Hans Christian Andersen (1952) music and lyrics by Frank Loesser
Though you’re no bigger than my thumb, than my thumb, than my thumb,
Sweet Thumbelina don’t be glum, la la la, uh uh uh, come come come,
Thumbalina, Thumbalina tiny little thing
Thumbalina dance, Thumbalina sing
Thumbalina what’s the difference if you’re very small?
When your heart is full of love you’re nine feet tall.
Song lyrics to Wonderful Copenhagen from Hans Christian Andersen (1952) sung by Danny Kaye music and lyrics by Frank Loesser
Wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen
Friendly old girl of a town
‘Neath her tavern light
On this merry night
Let us clink and drink one down
To wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen
Salty old queen of the sea
Once I sailed away
But I’m home today
Singing Copenhagen, wonderful, wonderful
Copenhagen for me (more…)
