Hey!

Oh, hey! Hello, honey.

- Am I going to see you later?

- You certainly are.

Wait. You can't go out there like that.

- Pierre?

- Yes?

The Big Boy wants to see you.

- But...

- Now.

- I'll get my hat and coat.

- You won't need them.

Come on, get in here quick.

- Boy, it's sure raining cats and dogs.

- Oh, it sure is, Pop.

There you are, Pop.

Find a home for them.

- Brother and sister.

- Brother and sister?

Yeah.

- Hello, honey.

- Hi, Rosie.

Crazy.

Oh, Larry, I'm just an average girl.

Honey, if you're an average girl,

I've been going out with boys.

Oh, Larry.

- Am I going to see you later?

- You certainly are.

I know a wonderful place

for just the two of us.

Yeah, where?

In a telephone booth.

Remind me to bring along

plenty of dimes, huh?

You're on, Mr. Todd.

So here he is, ladies and gentlemen,

that clown prince of song,

the one and only Larry Todd.

I don't care if the sun don't shine

I get my loving in the evening time

When I'm

with my baby

Well, it's no fun with the sun around

But I get going when the sun goes down

And I

meet my baby

That's when we kiss and kiss and kiss

And then we kiss some more

Who cares how many times we kiss?

Well, at a time like this

who keeps score?

Well, I don't care if the sun don't shine

I get my loving in the evening time

When I'm with my baby

I don't care if the sun don't shine

I get my loving in the evening time

When I'm

- I'm living it up

...with my baby

Well, it's no fun with the sun around

But I get going when the sun goes down

And I

I want you to meet

Meet my baby

That's when we kiss and kiss and kiss

Then we kiss some more

Who cares how many times we kiss?

Well, at a time like this

who keeps score?

I don't care if the sun don't shine

I get my loving in the evening time

- When I'm with my baby

- I'm with my baby

Pretty baby of mine

Where is Pierre?

All of his tables are full,

and there is no Pierre to wait on them.

Please don't get excited.

Pierre has been here,

then Pierre disappeared.

- But I arrange everything.

- How?

I sent Myron

to take care of Pierre's tables.

- Myron? Myron the busboy?

- Yes.

- You put a busboy on Pierre's tables?

- Yes.

Where is he?

He just went out

with an order of spaghetti.

Oh, no.

In my estimation

I had to call

'cause you've got so much on the ball

You hit the spot

Like the first embrace

when the knot is tied

Well, you hit the spot

Like a pipe and slippers by a fireside

Matter of factly, don't know exactly

what it is that you've got

But you hit the spot

You hit the spot

Like a balmy breeze on a night in May

You hit the spot

Like a cool mint julep on a summery day

You hit a new high

In my estimation

I had to fall

You, busboy!

I'm sorry, sir, but you know I'm nervous.

I could have spilled everything all...

Oh, shut up.

I'll get something to clean it up

right away, and don't you do a thing.

Oh, there you are. He's gonna get

something to clean you up right away.

I'm awfully sorry, sir, but I'm nervous,

and the man yelled

when I served the spaghetti.

- I'm not too well, anyhow.

- Hey!

Hey, hey! I'm not bothering you, am I?

Oh, no, sir. I'm just trying

to get this straightened out.

You don't mind if I finish my number,

do you?

- Oh, is the show on?

- No. I'm waiting for a bus.

Well, you're in the wrong place, buddy.

It's about three blocks down...

Oh, get out of here.

Let me finish my number.

You know what? I'll get that, lady.

- Oh, get out of here.

- Lady, the show is on, lady. I'll get this.

Just hold still.

You idiot!

- Who do you think you're pushing?

Herbert Baker

Sir Herbert Baker (9 June 1862 – 4 February 1946) was an English architect remembered as the dominant force in South African architecture for two decades, and a major designer of some of New Delhi's most notable government structures. He was born and died at Owletts in Cobham, Kent. Among the many churches, schools and houses he designed in South Africa are the Union Buildings in Pretoria, St. Andrew's College, Grahamstown, St. John's College, Johannesburg, the Wynberg Boys' High School, Groote Schuur in Cape Town, and the Champagne Homestead and Rhodes Cottage on Boschendal, between Franschhoek and Stellenbosch. With Edwin Lutyens he was instrumental in designing, among other buildings, the Rashtrapati Bhavan, Parliament and North and South Blocks of the Secretariat, all in New Delhi, which in 1931 became the capital of the British Raj and later of the Republic of India. He also designed the administration building at the then Prince of Wales School in Nairobi, Kenya now known as Nairobi School. His tomb is in Westminster Abbey. more…
