Description:Transcribed from the album "Bette Midler Sings the Rosemary Clooney Songbook" this chart was written by Adler and Ross for the musical "The Pajama Game", and was a huge hit for Rosemary Clooney. Midler's version opens with the little Colla Voce verse, though you can kick it off straight into tempo at measure 5 if preferred. We have written out the Piano backings in the first chorus to match the recording and keep the flavour of the original. Also included on the Vocal part is Midler's studio backing overdub answerback lines, though they are not really necessary in a performance of the chart. You could assign the answerback to one of the band, to enhance the effect at a stage performance. Midler's original also had some String lines which we have assigned to the Sax section. The vocal keys are A, modulating to Bb, and there are no Sax doubles.
