"I Feel Pretty"



Maria
(Click to watch)

When my wife and I first saw this spot, we had an "argument" as to whether they changed the lyrics from "gay" to "bright":
I feel pretty,
Oh, so pretty,
I feel pretty, and witty and gay (bright),
And I pity
Any girl who isn�t me today (tonight).
For those of you who care, it turns out the original stage lyrics for West Side Story were "bright" and "tonight" and they were changed to "gay" and "today" for the movie version. You would've thought it was the other way around.

Thank you kindly for this informative post... :) I was having the same debate with someone, and then did a google for the lyrics and got even more confused when I found both... so... Thanks!! :D
 
ditto!
