I saw Betty Garrett many years ago in her delightful one-woman show, and the highlight was ''South America, Take It Away'' from ''Call Me Mister.''

It's got one of Rome's most playful lyrics. In his salute to Latin dance, he rhymes ''rhumba'' with ''vertebrae lumba'' and ''cucumba'.''

And he wraps up this comic song with ''All this goin' and comin' to, this fancy Latin drummin' to, numbs my plumbin' .''
