HERBERT REYNOLDS was the pen name of Irish-American lyricist Michael Elder Rourke (1867-1933). Reynolds began his career as a press agent before moving on to lyric writing. Reynolds’ first successful collaboration with Jerome Kern was the song “They Didn’t Believe Me,” which was interpolated into the 1914 American version of The Girl from Utah. With P. G. Wodehouse, he co-wrote the lyrics for Miss Springtime in 1916. Reynolds went on to collaborate with Kern and several other lyricists in the Princess Theatre musical Very Good Eddie, with a book by Guy Bolton and Philip Bartholomae, and again in Rock-a-Bye Baby.
