Why can't the English?
Wouldn't it be loverly
With a little bit of luck
I'm an ordinary man
Just you wait
The rain in Spain
I could have danced all night
Ascot gavotte
On the street where you live
You did it
Show me
Get me to the church on time
A hymn to him
Without you
I've grown accustomed to her face
The embassy waltz.

The compositions on this album are great: three of them have turned into standard jazz tunes:
I could have danced all night
On the street where you live
Get me to the church on time
Another five tunes are wonderful. However, the album was of a production for the stage, and required some acting and stage voices, and these detract a bit from the musicality of the album, which after all is among the great musicals from mid-20th Century.
