The song was included in the hit musical Calamity Jane (1953). It is featured three times in the film. It is first sung by the character Adelaide Adams, then by Katie Brown (Allyn McLerie) after dressing up as Adelaide, and finally partly sung in the Golden Garter by Katie near the end of the film.


When you turn to the subject of Harry That's a horse from a different safari. He can box like a fox, he's as dumb as an ox But it's Harry I'm planning to marry

(Yes, it's Harry she's plannin' to marry)

My heart's twined around his suspenders He's the one that I truly adore I'm numb, I succumb when he renders The face on the bar room floor

When he flexes his muscles, I flutter Like a butterfly caught in a shutter When he calls me his mate I just disintegrate

Since the world first began (Since the world first began) Never been such a man (Never been such a man) Who could love like he can So it's Harry I'm planning to marry!
