Surprisingly I didn’t find many songs on Easter other than that are worshipping ones. A chance search got me to this 1948 hit American musical Easter Parade that had quite a few interesting songs. Light and hearty perfect for this Christian festival. Music was composed and Written by Irving Berlin. Judy Garland looks so different here compared to her Wizard of Oz “Dorothy”. Fred Astaire doesn’t really look like retired any much either. :P Here are two songs from the movie in one frame that sing about Easter. Incidentally the song “Easter Parade” was written by Irving himself in 1917, it didn’t hit it peak until this movie. (More history on the same here)



Lyrics in English for “Happy Easter” song:

[Astaire:] Happy Easter

[Passerby:] Happy Easter

[Astaire:] Happy Easter

[Passerby:] Happy Easter

[Astaire:] Me Oh My, There's A Lot To Buy
There Is Shopping I Must Do
Happy Easter To You

[Salesgirl:] Here's A Hat That You Must Take Home
Happy Easter

[Astaire:] Happy Easter

[Salesgirl:] Here's A Lid For Milady's Dome
Happy Easter

[Astaire:] Happy Easter

[Salesgirl:] This One's Made For The Hat Parade On The Well-Known Avenue
This One's Nice And It's Worth The Price
Happy Easter To You

[Salesgirl:] Here's A Hat For A Pretty Face
Happy Easter

[Astaire:] Happy Easter

[Salesgirl:] Here Is One That Is Trimmed With Lace
Happy Easter

[Astaire:] Happy Easter

[Salesgirl:] Here's A Touch Of The Quaint Old Dutch
It's So Old It's Always New

[Salesgirl:] This In White Is Exactly Right
Happy Easter To You

[Salesgirl:] I Think That Is A Lovely Hat
Maybe You Think So Too?

[Astaire:] I Do

[Salesgirl:] Wrap It Up For The Chap With A Very Happy Easter To You

[Chorus:] Never Saw Such A Lovely Day
Happy Easter

Everything Seems To Come Your Way
Happy Easter

My Oh Me, What A Kick To Be
On The Well-Known Avenue

Me Oh My, You're A Lucky Guy
Happy Easter To You
Happy Easter
Happy Easter
Happy Easter To You

[Unused Refrain:] Never Saw Such A Lovely Gal
Happy Easter, Happy Easter

Where Oh Where Did You Get Her, Pal?
Happy Easter, Happy Easter

My Oh Me, What A Hit She'll Be
On The Well-Known Avenue

Me Oh My, You're A Lucky Guy
Happy Easter To You
Happy Easter
Happy Easter
Happy Easter To You


Lyrics in English for “Easter Parade” song:

Never Saw You Look Quite So Pretty Before
Never Saw You Dress Quite So Handsome
What's More?

I Could Hardly Wait To Keep Our Date
This Lovely Easter Morning
And My Heart Beat Fast As I Came Through The Door For

In Your Easter Bonnet With All The Frills Upon It
You'll Be The Grandest Fella In The Easter Parade
I'll Be All In Clover And When They Look Us Over
We'll Be The Proudest Couple In The Easter Parade

On The Avenue, Fifth Avenue, The Photographers Will Snap Us
And You'll Find That You're In The Rotogravure
Oh, I Could Write A Sonnet About Your Easter Bonnet
And Of The Guy, I'm Taking To The Easter Parade

On The Avenue, Fifth Avenue, The Photographers Will Snap Us
And You'll Find That You're In The Rotogravure
Oh, I Could Write A Sonnet About Your Easter Bonnet
And Of The Girl, I'm Taking To The Easter Parade
