I was gifted a stack of old sheet music songs yesterday. A wonderful selection of well known tunes with witty lyrics from the first half of the 20th century. Most of I them I know, but there were a few delightful tunes I had not yet encountered in my musical travels. My favourite? ‘You’re the cream in my coffee‘ from 1928, by Ray Henderson (who also wrote ‘Five Foot Two‘, ‘Bye Bye Blackbird‘ and ‘I’m Sitting On Top Of The World‘).
