(Chorus 1) 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 Russian play Could guarantee I was a fool to fall And get that way Hi-ho, alas! and al- So, lack-a-day But still I can't dismiss The memory of his kiss I guess he's not for me (Chorus 2) He's knocking on a door But not for me He'll plan a two by four But not for me I've heard that love's a game I'm puzzled just the same Was I the moth or flame I'm all at sea It started off so swell This "let's pretend" It all began so well But what an end The climax of a plot Should be a marriage knot But there's no knot for me
