Probably a Sylvia Fine tune. Danny's wife wrote just about everythong he ever did.

Nope,

Meredith Willson it seems was the perpetrator of The Peony Bush song.

Lord help me, I'm so tired that scanning the thread list made this title look to me as if it were

Of course, I just got back in from walking my dog....

I couldn't resist - I bought the CD so I could hear this song.

THE PEONY BUSH
(Meredith Willson - as recorded by Danny Kaye)

'Twas the peony bush there in my garden
That made you turn around and smile at me.
Not the zinnias or gardenias with their fragrant perfume,
Forget-me-nots in fancy pots or orchids in-a bloom;
But the peony bush there in my garden
It did the trick as quick as one-two-three.
Please decorate my garden gate forever
And never will there be any bush.
But the peony bush for me.

Every rose, every tree, every bird and bee
Seem to rate a rondolet or two.
So a slight poetic push for my favorite bush
Would seem to be long overdue.

'Twas the peony bush there in my garden
That made you turn around and smile at me.
Not the zinnias or gardenias with their fragrant perfume,
Forget-me-nots in fancy pots or orchids in-a bloom;
But the peony bush there in my garden
It did the trick as quick as one-two-three.
Please decorate my garden gate forever
And never will there be any bush,
But the peony bush for me.

transcribed by ear from Danny Kaye - Cocktail Hour, a compilation by Allegro.

I may have misunderstood a word or two here and there, but I think it's a pretty accurate transcription. "And never will there be any bush But the peony bush for me" was a bit hard to pick out, but that must be it.

Fun song, but weird. But then, my kids think I'm weird.
