MACK AND MABEL AND TOOT TOOT TOOTSIE


Today, my very favorite musical, "Mack and Mabel" written by the great Michael stewart (book) and the amazing Jerry Herman premiered today at the Majestic Theatre in New York City. It had received rave reviews in Los Angeles during previews there, but had succumbed on the Great white Way after only 65 performances. Tood sad an ending? Perhaps. Audiences could not tolerate unhappy endings in the mid 1970's. But bar none Jerry Herman's score was so wonderful. "I Won't Send Roses" is simply beautiful. And I love "Tap Your Troubles Away". I sincerely hope this amazing show finds a re-birth somewhere. Today al;so on this date Al Jolson starred in a little known musical called "Bombo"-- there were three great and amazing songs in this lottle known Broadway musical. One was "My mammy", the second was "April Showers" and the third:
TOOT TOOT TOOTSIE
written by the great Gus Kahn
Yesterday I heard a lover sigh"Goodbye, oh me, oh my"
Seven times he got aboard his train
And seven times he hurried back
To kiss his love again, and tell her.....
Toot, toot, Tootsie, goo'bye
Toot, toot, Tootsie, don't cry
The choo choo train that takes me
Away from you, no words can tell how sad it makes me
Kiss me, Tootsie, and then
Do it over again
Watch for the mail,
I'll never fail
If you don't get a letter then you'll know I'm in jail
Tut, tut, Tootsie, don't cry
Toot, toot, Tootsie, goo'bye!
When somebody says goodbye to me
I'm sad as I can be,
Not so with this loving Romeo
He seemed to take a lot of pleasure
Saying goodbye to his treasure.....
Toot, toot, Tootsie,goo'bye
Toot, toot, Tootsie, don't cry
The choo choo train that takes me
Away from you, no words can tell how sad it makes me
Kiss me, Tootsie, and then
Do it over again
Watch for the mail, I'll never fail
If you don't get a letter then you'll know I'm in jail
Tut, tut, Tootsie, don't cry
Toot, toot, Tootsie, goo'bye!
