Good tune but I always jibe at the middle eight which is more or less the 
same as  `My Mothers Eyes`. Unfortunately is is difficult to play the tune 
without thinking of the lyrics of  MME which with `My Yiddishe Momma` must be 
the most schmaltzy lyrics ever recorded.



PS For the Brits. Except, `Did you think I would leave you dying
                                      When there`s room on my horse for two.
