Pal Joey

Synopsis: Joey Evans is charming, handsome, funny, talented, and a first class, A-number-one heel. When Joey meets the former chorus girl ("She used to be 'Vera...with the Vanishing Veils'") and now rich widow Vera Simpson, the two lecherous souls seem made for each other. That is, until Linda English comes along. Linda is a "mouse on the chorus line" and built like there's no tomorrow. But she's the typical good little girl from a good little home -- just the right ingredient to louse up Joey's cushy set up.

ladies and gentlemen.

We bid you good evening. l'm very happy

to be working in my hometown of...

San Francisco.

l've never seen him before.

l was born right here in this town,

right top of Telegraph Hill.

Yes, sir, my mother

was sending a wire at the time.

That's in Morse code. Secret Service

joke. What are you gonna do?

- You know this bum?

- Yeah, l know him.

- What's his name?

- His name's Joey Evans.

ls that the same Joey Evans

that caused all that trouble...

at the Hi-Ho Club a few years back?

You mean the same Joey Evans who--

l've had a request to do a song that's

dedicated to all the saloon keepers...

who are blowing their liquor license

called ""l Didn't Know What Time lt Was."'

""l didn't know--''

Oh, boy. C7, please.

l didn't know what time it was

Till l met you

Oh, what a lovely time it was

How sublime it was too

I didn't know what day it was

You held my hand

Warm like the month of May it was

And I'll say it was grand

He's got them in a trance.

Better they stay awake.

ln a trance, they won't drink.

lf they won't drink,

I got to go out of business.

Grand to see your face

Feel your touch

Hear your voice say I'm yours

Alone

l didn't know what time it was

And then I met you

Oh, what a lovely time it was

How sublime it was too

I didn't know what day it was

Then you held my hand

Warm like the month of May it was

And I'll say it was grand

Grand to be alive, to be young

To be mad, to be yours alone

Grand to see your face

Feel your touch

Hear your voice say

I'm all your own

He's cute!

You think anyone

with pants on is cute!

That's a lie.

l Iike lots of people without pants.

- What l mean is--

- Let it lay, honey.

l'm wise and

l know what time it is now

l'm wise and

I know what time it is now

I'm so wise
