Greg Gilpin has taken this cute Irving Berlin number and turned it into something special for SSA choirs. Everyone wondered why all the girls passed Johnny by...except Mary, that is. So let Mary tell you: He's not so good in the house, but on a bench in the park, you'd be surprised. A classic novelty number for the girls.

    We're doing the SSA version. It's simple and quick to learn. I wouldn't mind it being a tad more complex. I ended up giving most of the unison lines out as solos, which made it more interesting. Some theatrical potential.
