"When I Get My Name in Lights" as written by and Peter Woolnough Allen....
I'll dance and I'll sing. I'll do anything
Just to get my name in lights
I've got to try to hit the heights
Now that I'm free as a breeze again
Old nimble knees again
And soon they'll all know my name
I'll have fortune and fame
When I get my name in lights
It can happen overnight in these modern times
So hold that front page
This boy was born to strut the stage
I tap and sing and play the pianuh
Splash my name across a big bright bannuh
And that's why
I won't let go 'til I'm on radio
And when they come to see the sights
That'll be my name spelt right lighting up Times Square
I'll sit on a flagpole
Whatever's the rage
Just to get my picture on the front page
Just to get my name in lights

So hold that front page
This boy was born to strut the stage

I tap and sing and play the pianuh

Splash his name across a big bright bannuh

And soon they'll all know his name
He'll have fortune and fame
When he gets his name in lights
That'll be his name spelt right
Lighting up Times Square

Just to get his name
Just to get his name
Just to get his name in lights

Just to get my name in lights

And soon they'll all know my name
I'll have fortune and fame
When I get my name in lights
It can happen overnight in these modern times
I'll sit on a flagpole
Whatever's the rage
Just to get my picture on the front page
Just to get my name
Just to get my name
Just to get my name in lights
