This song, sung by Fred Astaire in A Damsel in Distress (1937) was originally marked "with a scholarly air" by the arranger Bill Thorp, prompted by the celebrated couplet from Ira Gershwin's lyric "I viewed the morning with alarm, The British Museum had lost its charm". There is also a reference to 'Summertime' at the point in the song with the words "and through foggy London Town the sun was shining everywhere". **** Not for sale in the USA ****
