Wait a minute. Hold the phone. I just played this show and there was no
"It's Beginning to Look Like Christmas," "You and I," or "May the Good Lord
Bless and Keep You" in my book. Nor is it on the original Broadway cast
recording. Are you sure these were in the play (along with "Ya Got Trouble,"
"Goodnight My Someone," "Wells Fargo Wagon," and "Lida Rose" among others).

Best regards,

playing "Shipoopi" on her boom box.)
