Otto Harbach

Now, laughing friends deride 
Tears I cannot hide
So I smile and say,
"When a lovely flame dies, 
Smoke gets in your eyes"
From his lyrics for the 1933 song, "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes."  (Jerome Kern wrote the music.)  Harbach was born on August 18, 1873, in Salt Lake City to Danish immigrant parents.  I could have waited until his birthday to post this quote, but decided it was perfect for "Bad Romance Tuesday."
