For those folks scratching their heads, it's from "Just You Wait," from My Fair Lady (of course):

Next week on the 20th of May, I proclaim Eliza Doolittle Day.
All the people will celebrate the glory of You and whatever you wish and want, I gladly will do.

"Thanks a lot, King," says I in a manner well bred,
"But all I want is 'Enry 'Iggins' 'ead!"
You alone can make my song take flight.

I'm so glad you cleared that up for us stoopid people.
"TheatreDiva90016 - another good reason to frequent these boards less."<<>> I hesitate to give this line of discussion the validation it so desperately craves by perpetuating it, but the light from logic is getting further and further away with your every successive post. <<>> -whatever2

As a little kid, listening to this LP on my parent's hi-fi system, I always misinterpreted it as "I proclaim Eliza Doolittle Die!" I didn't understand why should would be calling for her own death!

No, TheatreDiva, not "stoopid," but potentially unfamiliar with "My Fair Lady." For that matter, how many folks who are only somewhat familiar with "My Fair Lady" are familiar with "Just You Wait?" I'll bet there are loads of people who can identify "I Could Have Danced All Night," "Wouldn't it be Loverly," and "On the Street Where You Live" but have never heard "Just You Wait."

The only reason that I added "of course" after saying it's from "My Fair Lady" is that almost everyone knows that Eliza Doolittle is the protagonist in that show, even if they've never heard the less familiar songs.

In other words, TheaterDiva, I wasn't being snarky. I don't do snarky too well except when my target is the political party for which I wouldn't be caught dead voting. I can really twist the knife against those horse's patooties.
You alone can make my song take flight.
