But Not For Me

This song is by George Gershwin and appears on the musical soundtrack Girl Crazy (1930) and on the album Gershwin Jazz 'Round Midnight (1998).

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

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 Broadway play
Could guarantee

I was a fool to fall
And get that way
Hi-ho, alas!
And also, lack-a-day

But still I can't dismiss
The memory of his kiss
I guess he's not for me
