"A Pretty Girl is Like a Melody" as written by and Irving Berlin....
I have an ear for music,
And I have an eye for a maid.
I like a pretty girlie,
With each pretty tune that's played.
They go together,
Like sunny weather goes with the month of may.
I've studied girls and music,
So I'm qualified to say

A pretty girl is like a melody
That haunts you night and day,
Just like the strain of a haunting refrain,
She'll start up-on a marathon
And run around your brain.
You can't escape she's in your memory.
By morning night and noon.
She will leave you and then come back again,
A pretty girl is just like a pretty tune.

    General CommentWith music and lyrics by Irving Berlin, Allan Jones sung this for Dennis Morgan in “The Great Ziegfeld”, 1936. Dennis Morgan, in an uncredited role, performed "A Pretty Girl Is Like a Melody" (dubbed by Allan Jones). Yet another goof appears in the famed production number. "Pretty Girl" was written for the 1919 Follies, yet the picture depicts the number being in the first edition of the revue.
    I always thought the splendid choreography that accompanied it was by Busby Berkeley but noticed the Academy Award for Best Dance Direction went to Seymour Felix for "A Pretty Girl Is Like a Melody".
