How can you tell I'm under a spell?




Gosh. Miss Truly Scrumptious is 90 years old today! Any excuse to play this wonderful number...


What do you see
You people gazing at me
You see a doll on a music box
That's wound by a key
How can you tell
I'm under a spell?
I'm waiting for love's first kiss
You cannot see
How much I long to be free
Turning around on this music box
That's wound by a key
Yearning
Yearning
While
I'm turning around and around


Love it.

Happy birthday, Miss Sally Ann Howes (born 20th July 1930).

    1. Me too. Never mind Truly Scrumptious, however - it's The Child-Catcher who remains my ultimate role model... Jx

  2. I don't think I've seen Chitty Chitty Bang Bang all the way through in one go before. It lasts for days, doesn't it?
    I do like this music box number, though.

    1. I remember going to see it in the cinema, and yes, I think they had an interval (you're probably too young to remember that happening in the pictures)! Jx

  3. Very sweet but I always preferred Anna Quayle as Baroness Bomburst
