Under the Overpass

I Found A Million Dollar Baby | Day 246

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

“I Found a Million Dollar Baby” was a suggestion, and a darn good one, from my wife. Now, the song is stuck in my head.

Under the OverpassOn the day of taxes, I was feeling sad and I asked my sweet wife, “what song would go well with tax day”? Her response was “how about ‘I Found A Million Dollar Baby”. I had never hear of the song, so I checked it out on YouTube. The first vid was,..well, not the best one and I remarked to Sonja “really, is this the song?” Later, I found the Bing Crosby version,..a whole lot better.

I will freely admit that I enjoy singing this genre very much. It seems to fit my voice the best and I always remark that I was born about a century too late as I would have (or might have) made a good living doing this style of singing. Alas, here I am singing under an overpass *chuckle*.

Lyrics:

was a lucky April shower
It was the most convenient door
I found a million dollar baby
In a five and ten cent store.
The rain continued for an hour.
I hung around for three or four.
Around a million dollar baby
In a five and ten cent store.

She was selling china
And when she made those eyes,
I kept buying china
Until the crowd got wise.

Incidently
If you should run into a shower,
Just step inside my cottage door,
And meet the million dollar baby
From the five and ten cent store.

Love comes along like a popular song
Any time or anywhere at all.
Rain or sunshine
Spring or fall.
Say, you’ll never know when it may say hello
In a very unexpected place.
For example, take my case.

She was selling china
And when she made those eyes
I kept buying china
until the crowd got wise.

Incidently
If you should run into a shower
Oh, step inside my cottage door
And meet my million dollar baby
From the five and ten cent store.
