From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Anniversary_Waltz:

The Anniversary Waltz is a popular song written by Dave Franklin, the lyrics by Al Dubin. The song was published in 1941. It has been covered by Vera Lynn and Connie Francis. The title "Anniversary Waltz" is often mistakenly and confusingly used to refer to the entirely unrelated Anniversary Song.

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 07/12/14:

After Florida coach Steve Spurrior passed away and entered the Pearly Gates, God took him on a tour. He showed Steve a little 2-bedroom house with a faded UF banner hanging from the front porch.

"This is your home, Coach. Most people don't get their own house up here," God exclaimed.

Little Steve looked at the house, then turned around and looked at the one sitting on the top of the hill. It was a huge two-story mansion with white marble columns and little patios under all of the windows. LSU flags lineed both sides of the sidewalk with a huge purple and gold LSU banner hanging between the marble columns.

"Thanks for the home, God, but let me ask you a question. I got this little 2 bedroom house with a faded Florida banner, and Nick Saban got a mansion with new LSU banners and flags flying all over the place. Why is that?"

God looked at him seriously for a moment and then replied, "That's not Saban’s house, that's mine!!!!!"

The Anniversary Waltz

Lyrics by Al Dubin (10 June 1891 - 11 Feb 1945); Music by David Franklin, 1941
 

We just discovered each other
Tonight when the lights were low
One dance led up to another
And now I can't let you go

So tell me I may always dance
The Anniversary Waltz with you
Tell me this is real romance
An anniversary dream come true

Let this be the answer
To our future years
Through millions of smiles
And a few little tears
May I always listen to
The Anniversary Waltz
With you

Let this be the answer
To our future years
Through millions of smiles
And a few little tears
May I always listen to
The Anniversary Waltz
With you...
