Ziegfeld Follies

Synopsis: In heaven, showman Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. fondly recalls his first Broadway revue, the Ziegfeld Follies of 1907. Even from heaven, he is hoping that he can, for one last time, create that same magic by mounting one last follies. As he thinks about who he would like to appear in these follies, he is assisted in realizing his fantasy, at least in his own mind, by such luminaries as Fred Astaire, Edward Arnold, 'Lucille Ball', Marion Bell, Lucille Bremer, Fanny Brice, Cyd Charisse, Judy Garland, Kathryn Grayson, Lena Horne, Gene Kelly, James Melton, Victor Moore, Virginia O'Brien, Red Skelton, Esther Williams, Keenan Wynn, and, of course, a bevy of beautiful girls.

The Ziegfeld Follies was itself

a story of an era.

If it was gay, bright, beautiful...

...that's how Ziggy wanted it.

And, oh, I almost forgot:

The girls.

Ziggy was a specialist

at glorifying girls.

That's one of the most important

things about the Follies, you know.

So...

Here's to the beautiful ladies

Here's to those wonderful girls

Adeles and Mollys

Lucilles and Pollys

You'll find them all

In the Ziegfeld Follies

Here's to the silks and the satins

Here's to the diamonds and pearls

This is the mixture

To start the picture

So bring on the beautiful girls

Here's to the silks and the satins

Here's to the diamonds and pearls

A sweet endeavor

A joy forever

So bring on the beautiful girls

Here's to the beautiful ladies

Here's to those wonderful girls

Adeles and Mollys

Lucilles and Pollys

You'll find them all

In the Ziegfeld Follies

Here's to the silks and the satins

Here's to the diamonds and pearls

A joy forever

A sweet endeavor

To bring on the beautiful girls

This is the mixture

To start the picture

So bring on the beautiful girls

All this yap-yap-yap

About glorifying dames

Leaves me like a cold potato

I'd much rather be

With a handsome he

Like Van Johnson

Who's a real tomato

For a date with Fred MacMurray

You can bet your life I'd hurry

And a guy like Mischa Auer

Has me completely in his power

In fact most any man I've seen

Is the only man for me

Bring on those wonderful men

Bring me an elegant guy

A soldier or sailor

A Gable or Taylor

A short or a tall one

I just wanna call one

My own, private wonderful he

Bring what you can to me

Bring me a guy to pin up

Bring me a prince on a horse

A dark or a light one

I just want to sight one

Who'll call me his missis

And give with the kisses
