Old version of " Lady is a tramp"?
I'm looking for a version of "the lady is a tramp" which has a a music video, there is a woman singing in it too beside the main male singer. I keep finding the version with Bennett and Gaga, but its not it, I'm looking for an older version .

Richard Rodgers - music, and Lorenz Hart - lyrics wrote the score for the 1937 Broadway Play "Babes in Arms". The original cast was Mitzi Green, Ray Heatherton, and Alfred Drake and the Nicholas Brothers.
In 1939 the film version was made with Judy Garland and Micky Rooney.
The earliest recordings of the song was in 1937 from the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra with Edythe Wright. Midge Williams and Her Jazz Jesters, Sophie Tucker and Bernie Cummins.
Lena Horne then recorded it in 1948 for a movie about Rodgers and Hart "Words and Music".
Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald recorded it in 1950s and Shirley Bassey in the 1960s, becoming a signature song for each of them. Sinatra also sang it in the film Pal Joey.
