King's New Clothes, The - 1952

Music Written By: Frank Loesser
Lyrics Written By: Frank Loesser

Current Publisher: Frank Music Corp.

From Hans Christian Andersen. Copyrighted September 20, 1952. Previously registered for copyright as an unpublished son October 3, 1951.

Loesser was aware that purists might resent his changing "Emperor's" to "King's": "When you get home tonight," he told the Boston Herald prior to the film's release, "you try to make up a song with the word emperor in it, and then you'll see why I had to use the word king instead. I'll probably start a couple of wars when the picture opens, but I just couldn't do it the other way."
