Some day, when I'm awfully low




"Never Gonna Dance"

music by Jerome Kern and words by Dorothy Fields

 



  Though I'm left without a penny,
The wolf was discreet.
He left me my feet.
And so, I put them down on anything
But the la belle,
La perfectly swell romance.



Never gonna dance.
Never gonna dance.
Only gonna love.
Never gonna dance.


  Have I a heart that acts like a heart,
Or is it a crazy drum,
Beating the weird tattoos
Of the St. Louis Blues?


Have I two eyes to see your two eyes
Or see myself on my toes
Dancing to radios
Or Major Edward Bowes?


Though I'm left without a penny,
The wolf was discreet.
He left me my feet.
And so, I put them down on anything
But the la belle,
La perfectly swell romance.


Never gonna dance.
Never gonna dance.
Only gonna love.
Never gonna dance.


 
I'll put my shoes on beautiful trees.
I'll give my rhythm back to the breeze.
My dinner clothes may dine where they please,
For all I really want is you.


  And to Groucho Marx I give my cravat.
To Harpo goes my shiny silk hat.
And to heaven, I give a vow
To adore you. I'm starting now
To be much more positive.
That....

 
Though I'm left without my Penny,
The wolf was not smart.
He left me my heart.
And so, I cannot go for anything
But the la belle,
La perfectly swell romance.


Never gonna dance.
Never gonna dance.
Only gonna love you.
Never gonna dance.

(Best movie photos EVER!)
