Judy Garland - “Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart” (Listen, Darling, 1938)
Judy Garland - “In Between” (Love finds Andy Hardy, 1938)
Fifteen thousand times a day I hear a voice, within me say Hide yourself behind a screen You shouldn't be heard, you shouldn't be seen You're just an awful inbetween I'm past, the stage, of doll and carriage I'm not the age, to think of marriage I'm too old for toys, and i'm too young for boys I'm just an inbetween I'm not a child, all children bore me I'm not grown up, grown ups ignore me And in every sense, i'm just on a fence I'm just an inbetween I'll be glad, when mama lets me go to dances And have romances I'll be glad, to have a party dress that boys will adore A dress that touches the floor I'm sick and tired, of bedtime stories I'm so inspired, by love and glories But i guess it's no use, I still get Mother Goose I'm just an inbetween *Spoken* I'm allowed to go to pictures shows! That is if nurse is feeling able But we only go to Mickey Mouse I'm not allowed Clark Gable! It's such an imposition, for a girl who's got ambition To be an inbetween *Spoken* My dad says i should bother more About my lack of grammar The only thing that bothers me, is my lack of glamor! Why if i could use a lipstick and a powder puff Who knows i might be Garbo! In the rough Instead of inbetween I'll be glad, when Uncle Jim can't call me "Precious Child" That simply drives me wild I'll be glad, to have a date that doesn't grow on a tree A date thats not history I'll be so glad, when i have grown some All by myself, i get so lonesome And i hope and pray, for the day When i'll be sweet sixteen And i won't have to be, an inbetween.
