More About Singer

Rosemary Clooney was an American singer who was primarily thought of as a jazz singer, she was also the aunt of actor George Clooney. She came into prominence in the 1950’s most notably with the song “Come On-a My House”. She reportedly absolutely hated the song and refused. Clooney hated it because of what she thought were cheap racy lyrics, well racy for the time. Lines with innuendo such as “Come on-a my house, I’m gonna give you candy” come to mind. The song had to be sung with an Italian accent and sounds out of character compared to her other songs. However, Columbia Records insisted she record it, otherwise she would be fired. She recorded it, and it ended up being one of her biggest hits.

Here is the audio recording of the song “On The First Warm Day”

Song Lyrics Used

On the first warm day
On the first warm day

On the first warm day
On the first warm day in May
And we’ll teach the birds and bees
A thing or two
Oh, see how I love you
