On This Day…

 
Frank Loesser was born on this day in 1910.
Best known for his Tony, Oscar, and Pulitzer Prize winning compositions in Guys and Dollsand How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, this tune, from the 1942 film Sweater Girl, is the one that Irving Berlin wishes he had written.
All our friends keep knocking at the door
They’ve asked me out a hundred times or more
But all I say is, “Leave me in the gloom”
And here I stay within my lonely room

I don’t want to walk without you, baby
Walk without my arm about you, baby
 

I thought the day you left me behind
I’d take a stroll and get you right off my mind
But now I find
 
That I don’t want to walk without the sunshine
Why’d you have to turn off all that sunshine?
Oh, baby, please come back or you’ll break my heart for me
Because I don’t want to walk without you
No, siree
