...so I want to warn you laddie,
Tho' I know your perfectly swell,
That my heart belongs to daddy,
'Cause my daddy, he treats it so well.
'My Heart Belongs To Daddy,' Lyrics by Cole Porter
So, daddy please remember this,
That tomorrow starts a life of bliss,
Let me show them what they're gonna miss,
Kiss the boys goodbye,
'Kiss The Boys Good-bye,' lyrics by Frank Loesser

Josephine and pet cheetah
Josephine Baker recently gave a series of high-glamour performances at Carnegie Hall, in Harlem and across the country. Appearing in everything imaginable from pearl-dripped leotards, feathered headresses and fur boas, to blue jeans, t-shirts and sneakers, she got ovation after ovation for her sexually sentimental renditions of old favourites like "Begin the Beguine" and "I'm just wild about Harry," current classics like "People," and "Love Story."
Today she lives in Monte Carlo with twelve adopted children from a potpourri of nations, in a villa donated by Princess Grace of Monaco.
