John Williams (back in the days of Johnny Williams scored A GUIDE TO THE MARRIED MAN, directed by Gene Kelly! It starred Walter Matthau, Lucille Ball, Jack Bennie, Sid Caesar, Art Carney, Carl Reiner, Phil Silvers and Jane Mansfield.

Leslie Bricusse wrote lyrics to the title song which is performed here by Cassandra Nuss seeing the music for the first time for this sight-reading extravaganza. Stephen Van Dorn and Rena Stober improvise some back up moves. Mike Farrell swings on the piano. Nicholas Kraft shot and edited the video.

This is part of a series of recordings of obscure movie sheet music from the collection of Richard Kraft.

That's cute, thanks for sharing. However, I think one could easily have toned it down an octave, to avoid the shrill high-pitch. I dig the Turtles version of this song, despite the camp and perhaps - with contemporary eyes - rather sexist music video ("see the funny men doing women's stuff around the house"):
