  • (Shel Silverstein)

    I'll admit I'm not very handsome
    I'll admit my hair is getting thin
    I know I'm getting fat
    And some other things like that
    So do you wonder why I sit and slyly grin?

    It's just because (allegedly)
    Liz got round to Nicky Hilton
    To Michael Todd, and Wilding
    That makes three
    She got around to Eddie Fisher
    She got round to Richard Burton
    So I'm certain she'll get around to me
    Some day

    So I'm sittin` here waiting in the Star Club
    I'm confident and happy as can be
    I never go on dates
    I just sit here and wait
    Because I know she's gonna get around to me

    My mother says she thinks that I should marry
    She says Shirley is the girlie meant for me
    But I tell her how it is
    I've just got to wait for Liz
    Because I know she's gonna get around to me
    In VistaVision

    I know she's gonna get around to me

    (as sung by Iain MacKintosh)

  • [1985:] Taylor, Elizabeth (Rosemond) (b. Feb. 27, 1932, London) U.S. motion-picture actress. Her American parents were resident in England at the time of her birth, and at an early age she was given ballet lessons and appeared with her class before the British Royal Family. With the outbreak of World War II her parents returned to the United States, settling in Los Angeles. Her beauty brought her to the attention of a talent scout, and in 1942 she made her first film [...]. Unlike most child actors, her maturation led to better roles and greater acting skills. [...] Her personal life was well publicized; among her husbands were Michael Todd, Richard Burton (twice) and U.S. Sen. John Warner [plus Nicky Hilton, Michael Wilding, Eddie Fisher and Larry Fortensky]. (Encyclopaedia Britannica, vol 11, 588)
