|About My Ideal|
|“My Ideal” was introduced in the 1930 movie Playboy of Paris by Maurice Chevalier. The song was recorded by Margaret Whiting, daughter of the composer, with Billy Butterfield and His Orchestra in 1943. It was a big hit for her.|
Will I ever find the girl on my mind, the one who is my ideal?
Maybe she’s a dream, and yet she might be
Just around the corner waiting for me.
Will I recognize the light in her eyes, that no other eyes reveal
Or will I pass her by and never even know that she is my ideal?
