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 clouds of gray

Than any Russian play – can guarantee

I was a fool to fall – and get this way

Ah ho alas and awe – so lackaday

Although I can’t dismiss

The memory of her kiss

I guess she’s not – she’s not for me

Old man sunshine – listen you

Never tell me dreams come true

Just try it – and all start a riot

Beatrice 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 Polly-Anna’s

Who tell you fate supplies a mate – it’s all bananas

It all began so well – but what an end

This is the time – a fellow needs a friend

When every happy plot

Ends with a marriage knot

And there’s no knot, no (k)not for me
