Does anyone know the lyrics to "I'm Just Wild about Harry". It was written in to 20's and became a kind of theme song for Harry Truman in his election campaign.

I'M JUST WILD ABOUT HARRY
(Noble Sissle and Eubie Blake)

There's just one fellow for me in this world
Harry's his name, that's what I claim
Why for every fellow there must be a girl
I've found my mate, by kindness of fate

Refrain
I'm just wild about Harry
And Harry's wild about me
The heavenly blisses of his kisses
Fill me with ecstasy
He's sweet just like chocolate candy
And just like honey from the bee
Oh I'm just wild about Harry
And he's just wild about, cannot do without
He's just wild about me

There are some fellows that like all the girls
I mean the vamps, with cruel lamps
But my Harry says I'm the girl of all girls
I'm his ideal, how happy I feel

Repeat refrain

Regards Mick Bracken

Wasn't this song on the film "My Girl"? Well, at least an excerpt of it, anyway...

Does anyone know what "with cruel lamps" means?

Well, these lyrics are, on this date,
all over the Internet and you get lots of hits
when you use the search engine.

Nobody explains about the cruel lamps, however,
and what you get a lot of is:

"O cruel lamps of London . . . " which is another animal.

My guess is that "lamps" are eyes.

Here's a lead sheet, if anyone's interested.

Oddly enough I was just reading a news article about the original show in 1921 today.

Re: Piers Plowman's post (2 above).
I agree, lamps = eyes. Sounds right to me.
Good call!
