You Said It is a musical by Harold Arlen (music) and Jack Yellen (lyrics) that uses a musical book by Yellen and Sid Silvers.
The musical opened at the Chanin's 46th Street Theatre in New York City on January 19, 1931 and ran for 192 performances. The production was directed by John Harwood, choreographed by Danny Dare, and used set designs by Donald Oenslager and Dale Stetson. The production notably launched the career of Lyda Roberti.

The cast included comedian Lou Holtz and Good News (musical) lead Mary Lawlor. Like Good News, the story was set at a college.[1][2]
