George Gershwin

"But Not for Me"

Old man sunshine, listen you
Never tell me dreams come true
Just try it and I'll start a riot
Beatrix Fairfax, don't you dare
Ever tell me she will care

I'm certain it's the final curtain
I never want to hear from any cheerful Pollyannas
Who tell you fate provides a mate
It's all bananas

They're writing songs of love
But not for me
A lucky star's above
But not for me
With love to lead the way
I've found more skies of gray
Than any Russian play could guarantee

I was a fool to fall and get that way
Hi ho alas and also lackaday
Although I can't dismiss
The memory of her kiss
I guess she's not for me

I was a fool to fall and get that way
Hi ho alas and also lackaday
Although I can't dismiss
The memory of her kiss
I guess she's not for me
I guess she's not for me
