     E7      A     D      Dm7     A 
They're writing songs of love, but not for me; 
 B7        E7        D     A 
A lucky star's above, but not for me. 
  A7     D    Bm7   Bm5-/7      Cdim     F#m 
With love to lead the way, I've found more clouds of gray 
   F#m7  A    Bm7       Bm5-/7  E7 Bm5-/7 E7 
Than any Russian play could guarantee. 
      A       D    Dm7       A 
I was a fool to fall and get that way 
      B7      E7       A         
Heigh-ho! Alas! And also lack-a-day 
  A7     D     Cdim       A       B7 
Although I can't dismiss the memory of her kiss 
         Bm5-/7  E7   A 
I guess she's not  for me 
  E7           A      D       Dm7     A 
She's knocking on a door, but not for me 
         B7     E7      D       A 
She'll plan a two by four, but not for me 
   A7     D   Bm7   Bm5-/7     Cdim     A      F#m 
I know that love's a  game I'm puzzled, just the same 
 F#m7    A            Bm7     Bm5-/7   E7 
Was I a moth or flame,   I'm all at sea 
       A     D      Dm7    A 
It all began so well but what an end 
         B7    E7         A 
This is the time a fellow needs a friend 
  A7     D    Cdim       A        B7 
When ev'ry happy plot ends with a marriage knot 
       Bm5-/7     E7     A 
And there's no knot for me
