lily of the valley

lily lily of the valley, won't you be my very best pally
.....oh be my lily oh be my lily and I'll be your forget me not

My Mom sang this when I was young and then to my kids. She recently passed away and this song came to my mind. I would really like to know what the lyrics were. I know the tune as well. No search has turned it up yet. If anybody knows this song or anything about it, we would sure love to know.

My Grandparents' wind-up victrola
by: Jackie

Hi, I was enjoying the smell of our lily of the valley flowers in our garden today when I recalled that song which we played on an old wind-up victrola in my grandparents' front hall...but I couldn't remember the lyrics. Glad I found this website and maybe I'll check out the Grandma Wore Tights move. Thanks!

Lilly of the Valley
by: Ashley

This song, is from my favourite movie " Mother wore tights", Starring (you're right) Betty Grable and the song is lilly of the valley. They have uploaded the movie recently to youtube, but who knows how long that will last. All of these songs the in film were old Vaudeville hits, it was a Jazz one step. I hope you find it. Here's to shared memories.

lily, lily of the valley

I heard and saw this performed in a movie ages ago. Old black and white. It had two sisters who performed it but I can't for the life of me find the movie. The sisters I thought were either Grable or Roders. But looking them up, I haven't found it. I distinctly remember a swing and evetually the girls growing up and apart, they were vaudeville performers in the movie
