Once Too Often

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the compilation album The War Years (1941-1947) (1994).

Once too often
I'll get the go-by once too often
I'm gettin' mighty sick and tired
Of totin' a torch for you
So just be careful brother
I too, can find another
Remember, anything that you do
I can do too

Once too often
You're gonna slip up once too often
And then you'll have to change your tune
And sing in a different key
That line that you've been usin'
Will cease to be amusin'
It's gonna boomarang
When you come looking for me

Say, you're a wizard when it comes to cryin'
A master in the art of "alibi-ing"
Go on and do your tall and fancy lyin', baby
But! You will say you're sorry
Once too often

You're gonna weep but
I won't soften
You're gonna whimper like a pup
The day I catch up with you
Step out, go on and show off
Some night, the lid will blow off
You're gonna give my heart the business
Once too often
