Old man sunshine, listen, you
Never tell me dreams come true
Just try it, and I'll start a riot

Oprah Winfrey 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-annas
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

I was a fool to fall
And get that way
Hi ho, alas
And also, lack a day
Although I can't dismiss
The memory of her kiss
I guess
She's not for me

It all began so well
But what an end
This is the time
A fella needs a friend
The climax of the plot
Should be a marriage knot
But there's
No knot for me

Although I can't dismiss
The memory of her kiss
I guess
She's not for me
