George Gershwin – But Not For Me Lyrics


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
