1944: Nancy With the laughing face - Words & music by Phil Silvers & Jimmy Van Heusen
Inspired by Nancy Sinatra, daughter of Frank Sinatra
Although Phil had never written lyrics professionally, he decided on a whim, while visiting Sinatra at his home
and hearing Van Heusen play the melody, to try his hand at coming up with words to fit the tune.
The song is about Frank Sinatra's daughter, Nancy Sinatra, and was a staple of Sinatra's live performances from
Stanwood Music Corp., New York City - Arranged for piano, guitar & vocal
