The following is a list of 411 songs with lyrics by Dorothy Fields, arranged in alphabetical order. The minimal information given is the title, the composer, and the year of copyright. For most songs, I also list the title of the play, film, or television show in which the song first appeared, or for which it was intended. For some songs, I give the name of the singer or singers who first performed it. I note when a lyric is reprinted in one of the following three books: Their Words Are Music (referred to as Engel), Reading Lyrics (referred to as Gottlieb and Kimball), and On the Sunny Side of the Street (referred to as Winer). Complete bibliographical information for these books is given in the notes. Songs are included in this list if they appear in at least one of the following sources: the list of songs by Dorothy Fields in the Copyright Division of the Library of Congress; the list of songs in the ASCAP Ace Title Search; and Ken Bloom’s list of songs by Dorothy Fields, which is included in On the Sunny Side of the Street.
