Should we remove the copyright lyrics in case the Rodgers & Hammerstein Organisation sues Wikipedia and charges millions of dollars in damages?

I wanted to use it on my non-commercial website to help promote thinking about the raising of children - the family (estate) refused permission or said I'd have to pay some ridiculous sum. I can't see the point in this sort of prohibition - anybody can listen to the words of a song and write them down. I'll be in the front line if there is a battle about this.

Category: Barbra Streisand Songs[edit]

Why is this included in the Category: Barbra Streisand songs? While she may have performed this song at some point she certainly isn't the original performer, composer, or lyricist for the work.--MorrisIV (talk) 14:49, 20 April 2015 (UTC)

"One legislator"[edit]

The legislator who was quoted in February, 1953 objecting to "a song justifying interracial marriage" was apparently State Representative David C. Jones, of Sylvester, GA.[1] (Google finds many other references, too.) Should we name him? NCdave (talk) 05:54, 10 July 2015 (UTC)

I think so, any of those sources would do. A contemporary magazine also lists Jones and State Sen. John Sheppard as the two Georgia legislators up in arms over the song. We should however note that the GA Representative is not the same as the Air Force general. IgnorantArmies (talk) 08:11, 10 July 2015 (UTC)
