Betty Comden

Betty Comden, of Comden and Green, died a few days ago. Here's the New York Times obituary.

I'm just taking my time,
I'm just strolling along
While the world's on the run.
Once went hurrying by,
Never hearing a song,
Never seeing the sun.
What a surprise,
When I opened my eyes,
There was sunlight and skies,
And beginning that day
I discovered a world,
Such a wonderful world,
Every day is Thanksgiving
Now that I'm living
My way.

-- Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Subways Are For Sleeping (1962)
