April in Paris

One April, a friend of Vernon Duke's, inspired by his famous song "April in Paris," decided to spend the month there. The weather was terrible.

Upon his return, the traveler complained at great length about his disappointing trip. "Whatever made you go to Paris in April?" Duke asked. "The weather is always terrible then." "I went because of your song!" the friend cried. "Ah," the composer replied apologetically, "well we really meant May, but the rhythm required two syllables."
