During their long career, Betty Comden and Adolph Green wrote lyrics for some of the Broadway and film world's greatest composers, including Leonard Bernstein, Jule Styne, Cy Coleman, and Andre Previn. A Comden and Green lyric was always fun, poignant, witty, intelligent, and well-crafted. This book features 27 of their best-loved songs, as well as a song-by-song analysis and a special appreciation by Phyllis Newman (Mrs. Adolph Green). Titles: Comes Once in a Lifetime * If You Hadn't But You Did * Just in Time * Lonely Town * Make Someone Happy * Never Met a Man I Didn't Like * Never Never Land * New York, New York * The Party's Over * and more.
