How Could You Believe Me When I Said I Loved You When You Know I've Been a Liar All My Life?

This is my favorite dance number of all time: Jane Powell and Fred Astaire in the movie "Royal Wedding" (1951). Every time I watch it I end up just grinning ear to ear. And this has to be one of the longest song titles in history.

Also, I have got to get me a pair of pants like Astaire's. Slick.

Lotta old guys end up wearing their pants like that, after a while, right? This reminds me of the quote, "Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backward and in high heels." Nobody makes it look as easy as Astaire.
