Sammy Cahn: Call This Lyricist Irrepressible, Irreplaceable, Irresistible

cahn

 Today is the birthday of Sammy Cahn.
Many Old Standards you'll find his name on.
He wrote lively lyrics for "My Kind of Town"
And his words to "High Hopes" give a lift when you're down.*

 

*Next time you're found

With your chin on the ground,

There's a lot to be learned

Just look around.

Just what makes that little old ant

Think he'll move that rubber tree plant.

Anyone know an ant, can't

Move a rubber tree plant.

But he's got high hopes.

He's got high hopes.

He's got high apple pie

In the sky hopes.

So anytime you're feelin' low

Stead of lettin'go,

Just remember that ant.

Oops! there goes another rubber tree plant.

Oops! there goes another rubber tree plant.
