My Dog Chooses Mame!

There is a very little known fact about Mame and its composer, Jerry Herman. And, I don't think he even knows it! Only I possess this knowledge!

Jerry Herman has written the greatest lullaby in the world. Move over Brahms, and no more Tender Shephard either, because my dog chooses Mame as her favorite Broadway show. Especially for the famous Jerry Herman lullaby.

Each night, I am forced to sing it to her, or she just won't go to bed. So, I am going to sing for you, right here in cyberspace, a first: a cyberperformance. So, you will have to use your imagination a bit. Let me get the dog...

O.K. PLACES EVERYONE!

(The collie leaps onto the bed and begins kissing Billy Finn, staring endlessly into his eyes... wanting. It's time for the lullaby.)

"O.K. puppy, time for beddy bye, MEE, MEE, MEEEEE, MEE!" (Here we go!)

YOU'RE MY BEST GIRL
AND NOTHING YOU DO IS WRONG.
I'M PROUD YOU BELONG TO ME.
AND, IF A DAY IS...R-U-F-F-F...FOR ME,
HAVING YOU THERE IS...E-N-U-F-F-F FOR ME.

AND IF SOME DAY
ANOTHER GIRL COMES ALONG,
IT WON'T TAKE HER LONG TO SEE
THAT I'LL STILL BE FOUND
JUST HANGING AROUND
MY BEST GIRL!

AND IF SOMEDAY
WHEN EVERYTHING TURNS OUT WRONG;
YOU'RE THROUGH WITH THE HUMAN RACE,
COME RUNNING TO ME,
FOR YOU'LL ALWAYS BE
MY BEST GIRL

"Now, go to bed baby."

z-z-z-z-z-z-z

Works every time!

Thank you, Jerry Herman.
