"Love, Look In My Window"
Opening Lines:
Love, look in my window.
"Love, Look In My Window" is another song from Jerry Herman's musical, "Hello, Dolly!" But the song itself was only added after Ethel Merman took over the title rool, in 1967, from the original Dolly Levi, Carol Channing (it was added for Merman's wider vocal range) when Channing went out to Hollywood. Barbra Streisand would not sing the song either in the 1969 motion picture (when she played Dolly Levi) because the song was not put into the motion picture version.
