But Not For Me Lyrics - Judy Garland

Review The Song (1)

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 tells 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 skies of gray
Than any Russian play - could guarantee

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


Although I can't dismiss
The memory of his kiss
I guess he's not for me

"Girl Crazy" | Reviewer: jim | 6/2/11

"But Not For Me" with music by George Gershwin and lyrics by his brother Ira, was introduced in the 1929 Broadway musical review "Girl Crazy", which starred Ethel Merman and a very young and talented Ginger Rogers. This musical contained several of Gershwin's most popular and enduring standards, including "I've Got Rhythmn" and "Embraceable You", which actually occassioned the first dance between Ginger Rogers & Fred Astaire. Astaire was starring with his sister, Adele, in another Broadway production. The producers of "Girl Crazy" were having difficulty choreographing the steps for "Embraceable You", and at George Gershwin's suggestion, Astaire was brought over to help with the choreography. He stepped in and helped Ginger Rogers with several travel steps - which led to at least one date and a brief romance. They, of course, reunited in Hollywood several years later and achieved terpsichorean immortality!
