About the song: You’ve had a delightful April in Paris, spent a lovely autumn in New York, left your heart in San Francisco and proclaimed that Chicago is a toddling town. Now it’s time for springtime in Boston, a glorious part of the year in a lovely city which has managed to go 400 years without a song standard of its own. Until now. (But a tip of the hat to "Dirty Water," Charlie who "never returned" from his subway ride, Harnick’s "Boston Beguine" and Gershwin’s "Back Bay Polka.")

Gender point of view: Irrelevant.
