My Gentle Young Johnny by Jerry Bock and Sheldon Harnick

Oh when will I find you
And where will we meet
My gentle young Johnny
So steady and sweet
Oh when will you come for me
When will you take me away

You’ll see what I am
And you’ll know what I’ve done
And yet when you love me
You’ll be the first one
My gentle young Johnny
Shall we be married today…

Orchestration is by Irwin Kostal of Sound of Music fame, and who I should be blogging more about, as Kostal’s the first orchestrator I was ever aware of. This is an unusual melody, uniquely arranged, and would make a great audition piece.
