About How About You?

"How About You?" is a popular song composed by Burton Lane, with lyrics by Ralph Freed. (1941 in music) It was introduced in the 1941 film Babes on Broadway by Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney. The lyrics of the song are often changed depending on the recording artist. In its original form it is a humorous romantic duet, though rarely recorded that way. Certain lyrics, especially those with topical references, are often changed based on the time of the performance's release. For example, the line "Franklin Roosevelt's looks give me a thrill" was changed to "James Durante's looks" in a 1950s recording by Sinatra, though he did sing it in its original form with Dorsey back in the 1940s. Bob Crosby, Mary Livingstone and Jack Benny sang the song as a novelty trio on a 1955 episode of Benny's TV show. Lucille Ball and Van Johnson sang and danced to this song on an episode of I Love Lucy.

When a girl meets boy
Life can be a joy
But the note they end on
Will depend on little pleasures they will share
So let us compare

I like New York in June, how about you?
I like a Gershwin tune, how about you?
I love a fireside when a storm is due
I like potato chips, moonlight and motor trips
How about you?

I'm mad about good books, can't get my fill
And Franklin Roosevelt's looks give me a thrill
Holding hands in the movie show
When all the lights are low
May not be new, but I like it
How about you?

I love to dream of fame, maybe I'll shine
I'd like to see your name right beside mine
I can see we're in harmony
Looks like we both agree
On what to do
And I like it, how about you?
