But Not for Me
Old man sunshine, listen you
Never 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 want to hear from any cheerful Pollyannas
Who tell you fate supplies 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

It all began so well, but what an end
This is the time a fellah needs a friend
Love ain't done right by now, however
What the hell, I guess he's not for me

I was a fool to fall and get that way
I should have known the price I'd have to pay
Although I can't dismiss the memory of his kiss
I guess he's not for me
