Dept. of Clarification

Following the previous posting, we should note that while Bob Haymes wrote the lyrics for "They Say It's Spring," the lovely melody was written by Marty Clarke.

In a switch, Haymes wrote the music for "That's All" (recorded in France as "C'est Tout") but the lyrics were by Alan Brandt.

"You for Me,"another song recorded by Blossom Dearie, was all Haymes, words and music.

Bob Haymes, who, like  Ms. Dearie, spent a lot of time in France, also wrote French lyrics for her for "I Won't Dance," and other songs. Her Francophone version of "It Might As Well Be Spring" is charming.
