But Not For Me
The Flamingos 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

I was a fool to fall and get that way
Hi-ho, alas, and also lack-a-day
Although I can't dismiss the memory of his kiss
I guess he's not for me

I was a fool to fall and get that way
Hi-ho, alas, and also lack-a-day
Although I can't dismiss the memory of his kiss

Tommy Hunt is still alive, I also wish they would release many of their tv footage from American Bandstand.

Allen Blaine great great idea allen

jgv007

wouldn't you just like to be able to get into your car, turn on the radio and hear great music like this again? Right now, my radio is never on in my car. I just play my CD's to hear music that has meaning and I can understand the words being sung. I miss it.
