Frank Albertson & Marjorie White - "Never Swat A Fly" (1930)

A DeSylva, Brown and Henderson (they wrote Good News) song from the 1930 movie Just Imagine, a science fiction musical (yes, you heard me right -- a science fiction musical).

1960s folkies may know the song from Jim Kweskin's 1967 cover -- although his version strikes me as very smirking and arch. This original has a nice innocence and sincerity to it.
