Little is known of Irving Caesar’s alternative lyric (and title 'Swansea') for this, George Gershwin’s first big success (1919). Prompted by an unexpected and entirely spurious visit to Wales the following year, the new version is suffused with Celtic overtones and contains the legendary lines "I’d give the world to be, Among the folks in D-Y-F-E-D…." The next port of call on the companions short European tour (and this is reflected in the arrangement) was Prague (aha!) where they eagerly imbued the Bohemian spirit and lifestyle of the artistic community centred on Novy Svet (literally 'New World'), the old poor quarter.
