here’s the story about the song told by Marijohn Wilkin:
She phoned Kris, who just was in town with Rita, that she had the second verse and the chorus of a new song but could not come up with a suitable opening. When she showed him how she started the song, “I’m just a mortal…” he looked at her, “Why don’t you say, I’m only human, I’m just a man…” She, “That’s good! That’s what I need.” And they finished the first verse in about 20 min. “The lines just flew out from each of us.”
