Here's a song for March. It's from the 1920s, and it's funny. It's about a guy who is laying these endearments on a woman, such as, you're the starch in my collar and you're the lace in my shoe. Do women really want to hear that? Then, after laying them on her, he starts bragging about how good he is at coming up with them compared to other men. 

So basically, he's an idiot, but an amusing idiot, and that makes the song fun. 

Towards the end of the recording, one of my retreat guests walked through the room to go out to the patio, and that distracted me. But hey, no harm, no foul. This is light stuff.  

So, from the Roaring Twenties, with music by Ray Henderson and lyrics by Buddy DeSylva and Lew Brown, here is You're the Cream in my Coffee
