keberoxu Lyr ADD: Comes Love (nothing can be done) (11) RE: Lyr ADD: Comes Love (nothing can be done) 09 Sep 21

So, I just tried looking up Lew Brown, and, my goodness.

His family was Jewish-Ukrainian and he was born in Odessa.
He was a five-year-old when the family fled to the United States in 1898.
His given name was more like Lewis Brownstein.

Besides the musical that contained "Comes Love,"
he has lyric credits for:

"The Birth of the Blues"
"It All Depends on You"
"The Best Things in Life are Free"
"Button Up Your Overcoat"
"You're the Cream in my Coffee"
"Sonny Boy"
"Sunny Side Up"
"Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries"
"That Old Feeling"
"Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree"

. . . and, for what it's worth,
one of his daughters married Gerry Mulligan.

Yes, in the Comes Love lyric,
I especially fancy:

Comes a headache,
you can lose it in a day;
Comes a toothache,
See your dentist right away;
Comes LOVE      ... etc.
