That's right.

  1. I hasten to add that Miss Day was in her early fifties when she did this. That's right.

    1. exactly! That's what I'm saying.
      The woman never ages. It's amazing.

  2. Wow! The ill-advised choice of this song and that cameo appearance by Cousin Oliver from "The Brady Bunch" aside, Doris looks outrageously sexy for early fifties!

  3. Funny, when I was a child, Tim Conway always cracked me up. Now I can barely tolerate him.

    1. And by "barely", I'm being generous.

    2. I love Dodo, but this ranks with Dinah Shore's version of "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" in musical discomfort... Conway always bugged me when he'd interrupt the Burnett skits with his meandering stories...

    3. It used to bug the shit out of me when Carol/Harvey/Tim would "crack each other up" on the old Burnett show. When the audience wouldn't laugh at the mediocre sketch, they'd make each other laugh in the hopes that the audience would at least laugh at that. If only each sketch would've had Lyle Waggoner running around shirtless, usually in a towel, lol. Fortunately Doris keeps the momentum going here. And her figure here puts younger women to shame - she looks fantastic here!!

  4. And just exactly what were cousin Oliver and Humphrey Bogart doing in the bushes?

  5. One of my favorite Days used to be Doris - but after her TV sitcom, she seemed content to surround herself with second banana performers (like the ones in this "song"). Where were all her movie cohorts?
    These two groups of legendary ladies knew how to do it better: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgTsBsSngrc&feature=player_embedded

  6. I've always felt that Miss Day's singing career was overshadowed by her work in films. She's a fantastic vocalist, and probably could have done something wonderful even with a song like this one, given the chance. But apparently the focus was on clowning around. Still, any Doris is better than none!
