But Not For Me by George Gershwin


(Verse)
Old man sunshine, listen you
Don’t you tell me dreams come true
Just try it, and I’ll start a riot
Beatrice Fairfax, don’t you dare
Ever tell me, he will care
I’m certain, it’s the final curtain
I never wanna hear
From any cheerful Pollyannas
Who tell you Fate supplies a mate
It’s all bananas
(Chorus 1)
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 found more clouds of gray
Than any Russian play
Could guarantee
I was a fool to fall
And get that way
Hi-ho, alas! and al-
So, lack-a-day
But still I can’t dismiss
The memory of his kiss
I guess he’s not for me
(Chorus 2)
He’s knocking on a door
But not for me
He’ll plan a two by four
But not for me
I’ve heard that love’s a game
I’m puzzled just the same
Was I the moth or flame
I’m all at sea
It started off so swell
This “let’s pretend”
It all began so well
But what an end
The climax of a plot
Should be a marriage knot
But there’s no knot for me
