Album At the Pershing. But Not For Me Lyrics. Old man sunshine listen you Never 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 want to 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've found more clouds of gray Than any Russian play could guarantee.
