InFrank Sinatra asked Martin to revise the line "Until then we'll have to muddle through somehow. Do you think you could jolly up that line for me?
InMartin, occasionally active as a pianist with religious ministries since the s, wrote an entirely new set of lyrics to the song with John Fricke"Have Yourself a Blessed Little Christmas," a religious version of the secular Christmas standard. The song was recorded by gospel female vocalist Del Delker with Martin accompanying her on piano. InNewSong lead singer Michael O'Brien noted the line "through the years, we all will be together if the Lord allows," which was part of the original song, was purged and replaced with "if the fates allow" to remove religious reference when the song was released.
He noted while a pastor in a California church in that he had met Martin, who played piano at the church where O'Brien was serving for an evening, and the pastor was told, "That's the original way I wrote it, so I want you to sing it this way.

Louis and that "all of the so-called Martin and Blane songs except for Best Foot Forward were written entirely by me solo without help from Ralph or anybody else. Judy Garland 's version of the song reached No. The lyrics Garland sang in Meet Me in St.

Eddie Slovik in The New York Times film reviewer, while recognising the power of the scene, complained that "the device itself is almost as specious and sentimental as what [Foreman] is trying to mock".

The kids are echoing his fears. Why is she sending this How Little We Know - Frank Sinatra - Ol Blue Eyes (CD) What is going on? It is such good news; they can't believe it and they don't trust it.
The twist is her saying, "She's comin' home. We find out that he really didn't communicate anything to her, and she isn't coming back. Although we're getting all of this story from him, she never got any of this.
If she had heard this album, she might have come home. She never saw this side of him. When I think about this in retrospect, there is so much that is not done. There is so much that is unfinished. It gives the story a very deep resonance. She wanted to be an artist or a singer. He was a hometown person. His whole orientation was family and business. He was the kind of guy who really lived in Watertown.
She was more restless — a more contemporary woman. She wanted to do other things. She wasn't liberated enough to tell him, and she didn't think he'd understand.

Realistically, this song is about Billie Holiday. Her nickname was "Lady Day".
