That show you mention was late in his career, so I still don't know if he
wrote any lyrics "early on", and if he did and anyone knows, please inform.
Also, Rodgers' daughter wrote a show as well -- not sure if it went anywhere
or not, and she is rarely mentioned in the composer arena.

Richard Rodgers eventually wrote a show all by himself. (No Strings)
Great tune is "Lots of Lovely Love" - uses the circle - nice for improvs.
Seems he couldn't get along with any lyricists at this point. He even fired
I've heard that he died unhappy - waiting for the next hit show. (PBS
Did he write any lyrics early on in his career? I don't know.
