"Everyone says I love youThe song also appears in the Broadway version of "Animal Crackers," but with different lyrics:
But just what they say it for I never knew
It's just inviting trouble for the poor sucker who
Says I love you."
Everyone Says I Love You/The great big mosquito and the bee sting too/ The fly when he gets stuck on the fly paper too says I Love You/ Every time the cow says moo/She makes the bull-a very happy too/ The rooster when he hollers cock-a-doodle-doodle-doo says I Love You/ There are only 8 little letters in this phrase, you'll find/ But they mean a lot more than all the other words combined/ Everyone, no matter who/The guy over 80 and the kid of two/ The preacher on the pulpit and the man in the pew says I Love You/ Christopher Columbus he write the Queen of Spain a very nice little note/ He said "How I Love You, my queen" and then he gets himself a bigger, bigger boat/Why you no do what Columbus do/ When he's a come in 1492/He said to Pocahontas "Acki Vachi Vachi Voo,"/ That means "You little son of a gun, I Love You."

The African explorer
(Did somone call me 'schnorrer'?)
Hooray hooray hooray!
He went into the jungle
Where all the monkeys throw nuts
(If I stay here I go nuts)
Hooray hooray hooray!
He put all his reliance
In courage and defiance
And risked his life for science
He is the only white man
Who covered every acre
(I think try and make her)
Hooray hooray hoorah!
Joanna told me Aug 11:
I just saw a screening of Allen's new musical - Everybody Says I Love You. It was good (I am a real fan), but not very typical of Woody's work. It was suprisingly light without the deep neurotic discussions we all know, love, and expect form his work. Julia Roberts is not his daughter in the film, rather she is his girlfriend. Everyone in the film sings, and their performances are not that bad (with the exception of Julia Roberts who has no singing ability whatsoever). Allen is a divorced writer who lives in Paris and is still friendly with his ex-wife (Goldie) and her present husband (Alda) who live in Manhattan. They are five kids, and their parentage is unclear. On the whole, I enjoyed the movie and I recommend it to anyone who is a musical fan (regardless of your feelings on Woody).Aaron told us on news:
Allen Musical Out in Dec.Juli told me:
Woody Allen's comedy musical, "Everyone Says I Love You," will be released domestically in December by Miramax. Written, directed by and starring Allen, "Everyone" also features Alan Alda, Drew Barrymore, Lukas Haas, Goldie Hawn, Gaby Hoffman, Edward Norton, Natalie Portman, Julia Roberts and Tim Roth. The picture, Allen's 26th, was filmed in New York, Venice and Paris. He hinted at his new creative direction at the end of "Mighty Aphrodite" when he included a production number with a dancing Greek chorus set to "When You're Smiling."
I'm sure you've heard that before the concert could take place that the Fenice Theatre in Venice burned to the ground. (see Fenice Theater at http://www.gpnet.it/fenice/) The concert took place in another theatre but Woody was saddened to learn that this beautiful theatre burned down.Egoman wrote on news 24 Feb 1996:
The city of Venice and other institutions world wide are gathering funds to re-build the Fenice and now Woody has offered to hold the World Premiere of his new film here in Venice.

Everybody loves a good old fashioned musical and who better to bring it to the screen than Woody Allen? Yes indeed, Woody Allen's highly anticipated fall project is a modern day musical comedy called "Everybody says I Love You" starring (in alphabetical order) Alan Alda, Woody Allen, Drew Barrymore, Goldie Hawn, Gaby Hoffman, Edward Norton, Natalie Portman, Julia Roberts and Tim Roth. Alan Alda, who had wanted to do a musical for years, was thrilled when approached about the project by longtime friend and producer Jean Doumanian. Filmed on location in Paris, Venice and New York, "Everyone Says I Love You" promises to bring movie musicals back to popularity.
Woody Allen was filming the new movie at Columbia University Graduate School of Business this fall. It was a musical scene.Bernard Klainberg wrote on news 08 Dec 1995 [article slighty modified]:

Woody Does Italy - Cameras rolled Sept. 11 in Venice on the Italian sequences of Woody Allen's next feature, a comedy-musical starring the director alongside Julia Roberts, Goldie Hawn and Alan Alda. The two-week stint in Venice marks Allen's second foray onto an Italian location, following scenes shot in a Sicilian resort for "Mighty Aphrodite." Despite the customary secrecy that surrounds Allen's features during production, Italian press reports give away basic plot elements. The story centers on a traditional, close-knit Jewish family with a half-crazy grandfather and an absent father. The Italian interlude features Allen and Roberts as father and firstname.lastname@example.org wrote on news:

Alda worked with Allen on Crimes and Misdemeanors, and Midler, who has a cameo role in the new picture, team with Allen on Paul Mazursky's Scenes from a Mall.
Barrymore is currently in Batman Forever; Crudip's coming projects include Sleepers.
Allen's untitled fall project is executive produced by Jeanne Doumaniam and produced by Robert Greenhut. The picture is scheduled to be shot in New York and Paris in September.
