cartlandetchase It’s from the Ziegfeld Follies of 1927 and it’s called it all belongs to me, it’s a delightful sounding song, it’s on spotify if you have it :)

Here she comes
Come on and meet
A hundred pounds of what is mighty sweet
And it all belongs to me

Flashing eyes 
And how they roll
A disposition like a sugar bowl
And it all belongs to me

That pretty baby face
That bunch of style and grace
Should be in Tiff’ny’s window
In a platinum jewel case

Hey there, you
You’ll get in dutch
I’ll let you look but then you mustn’t touch
For it all belongs to me

Here she comes
Come on and meet
A hundred pounds of what is mighty sweet
And it all belongs to me

Rosy cheeks
Red hot lips
A million dollars worth of flying hips
And it all belongs to me

Those lips that I desire
Are like electric wire
She kissed a tree last summer
She started a forest fire

I felt like posting those lyrics I like that song but it’s not on youtube

Calling all Vivien Leigh and/or Laurence Olivier fans, Anglophiles, English people, Londoners:

Durham Cottage, Vivien and Laurence Olivier’s love nest in Chelsea, London, was auctioned off today. As it isn’t a Grade Listed building (it’s old and has obvious historic value, so why it’s not listed is beyond me), it runs the risk of being drastically remodeled, or worse, demolished. 

It may be too late to do anything, but please sign this petition to ask English Heritage to intervene with a temporary grade listing. 

Even if you have no idea who Vivien Leigh or Laurence Olivier were, this building has historical value. Plus, it’s a colorful and quirky gem in a sea of brownstone near the Chelsea Royal Hospital. Please add your name to the list!

Thanks!

Say, this racket’s the bunk, isn’t it? Three bucks a day and a boxed lunch that would kill a horse!
