i found a million dollar baby lyrics – bing crosby

it was composed by the late harry warren, whom i knew the last several
years of his life, when he was a member of the pacific pioneer
broadcasters and often was a guest at their luncheons. harry wrote it
in 1931, i believe; and that was the year that crosby recorded it on
brunswick and it was one of his first really big hits. i have known the
lyrics by heart for over fifty years, and here they are from bing crosby’s

it was a lovely april shower,
it was a most convenient door,
i found a million dollar baby
in a five and ten cent store.
the rain continued for an hour
i hung around for three or four
around the million dollar baby
in the five and ten cent store.

she was selling china
and when she made those eyes,
i kept buying china
until the crowd got wise.

if you should run into a shower,
well step inside my cottage door,
and meet the million dollar baby
from the five and ten cent store

love comes along like a popular song
anytime or anywhere at all,
rain or sunshine,
spring or fall.
say, you’ll never know when it may say h*llo
in a very unexpected place,
for example, take my case.
