Maybe it was just a coincidence, or perhaps it was all those baby parades that influenced them, especially the ones that were held in Wildwood. Who knows? But whatever the case Harry Warren and Johnny Mercer came close to summing up the parades in 1938 when they composed the song, “You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby.”
