Where Does Love Begin?

Writer(s): Jule Styne, Sammy Cahn
With Gloria deHaven
From the movie, “Step Lively”
From the CD Frank Sinatra In Hollywood (1940-1964) Disc 1, track 23

Frank Sinatra: My mother, she’s worried about me.
Gloria deHaven: I know, cause I have a woman’s intuition. I can’t help it,
I have ambition, I have an urge and it’s simply must go bad.
Now don’t be alarmed unduly, My pose must seem unruly,
But I love to convey, and you must let me convey it,
Frank: That hog was just fine old blow, that’s why I like to know,
(sings) Affair, does love begin and where?
Friendship and you give what you call a peck
And tell it’s just affection.
When does love begin and where does friendship end,
Why is it every time you make a find, I need a protection.
There are something we don’t set but you always say
You treat me just like a parent with kisses of busses,
Don’t give the busses so well.
But will you please define that fine dividing line
And if I find that line won’t break, I’ll make it bend,
So where does love begin and where does friendship end?

Frank: Do you know that the New York City has the finest police department in the whole world?
Gloria: Oh, has it?
Frank: You’re not listening to me, Miss Abbott. You know that New York City has the finest police, you know, please? Please! We couldn’t be relation, not from the way you act. Cause I have this funny sensation, and a kiss from my sister doesn’t bring on a blister. (sings)
Will you please define that thin dividing line
And if that line won’t break it, I’ll make it bend,
So where does love begin and where does friendship end?
