    Composer and lyricist Leslie Bricusse wrote; ‘My two favorite songs from the score are THROUGH THE EYES OF A CHILD and CINCINNATI. I like the philosophy of the first and the fun of the second. As a songwriter, I’ve always found that kids love songs that play with words, which CINCINNATI does throughout. Liza Minnelli and her husband Mark Gero were spending their summer holiday with us in France when I wrote the song. Liza learned it immediately, and every morning when we went out on the boat she and I would duet it lustily to the world at large, falling about with laughter at the end from the sheer delight of getting through the lyric.’
