Liner notes, by Derek Taylor:
Slender tender clever, brighteyed young and fine,
To Vegas Claudine Longet came, arriving just in time
To Dance, to act, to be -- to shine.
Schooled in ballet, drama-trained, she worked until
Her car broke down. "Hello," said Andy Williams,
Passing by. "Pardon?" said Miss Longet. "Help have I,"
Said Andy, and in a little while, the car was fixed
And the two were wed and then, and by and by,
     two children came
And Claudine said, "Bye Bye" -- farewell to
     footlights, arclights, fame.
Well, "au revoir" was what she meant, for in a
     year or so
She sang a song on Channel Four and Alpert said, "Hello!
"There's magic there -- and honesty;
"We'll sign her, seal her, albums make."
Thrice one LPs there are by now -- this one is
     Number Three;
A lovely thing -- a joy to hold, to hear, to know, to see.
Slender, tender, clever -- still brighteyed young and fine,
Claudine's here for ever now. She's Andy's, yours
     -- and mine.
