    Here's Lookin' At You Kid ...

    Key Largo is an island off the coast of Florida that was the setting for the 1948 movie of the same name. The movie starred Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, who were married in real life and one of the most glamorous couples in Hollywood.

    Bertie Higgins spent a lot of time in the Florida keys and based this song on the movie, with a failed romance also serving as inspiration. It was the only hit for the singer/songwriter Higgins, who started his career in the early '60s as the drummer in Tommy Roe's backup band.

    Key Largo.

    Wrapped around each other
    Trying so hard to stay warm
    That first cold winter together
    Lying in each other's arms
    Watching those old movies
    Falling in love so desperately
    Honey I was your hero
    And you were my leading lady

    We had it all
    Just like Bogie and Bacall
    Starring in our old late, late show
    Sailing away to Key Largo

    Here's lookin' at you kid
    Missing all the things we did
    We can find it once again, I know
    Just like they did in Key Largo
    [From: http://www.elyrics.net]

    Honey can't you remember
    We played all the parts
    That sweet scene of surrender
    When you gave me your heart
    Please say you will... play it again
    'Cause I love you still
    Baby this can't be the end

    We had it all
    Just like Bogie and Bacall
    Starring in our old late, late show
    Sailing away to Key Largo

    Here's lookin' at you kid
    Missing all the things we did
    We can find it once again, I know
    Just like they did in Key Largo

    Bacall was a fox.
    My first wife was a lot like her. In fact, that was what attracted me to her in the first place.

    I miss both of them.
    (Though I never actually met Lauren. [sigh] I was much too young for her.)

    By the way, I always hated that song.
    Love Key Largo. We are going there in January.

    Yeah that she was and after Ms Monroe of course, she's one of my favourites from that era.
