The song was introduced by Clifton Webb in the 1929 revue The Little Show and reprised in the musical film, "The Band Wagon." It was also used as incidental music in the film "The Big Sleep" and has become a pop standard, recorded by many artists.
I guess I'll have to change my plan I should have realized there'd be another man I overlooked that point completely Until the big affair began
Before I knew where I was at I found myself upon the shelf and that was that I tried to reach the moon but when I got there All that I could get was the air
My feet are back upon the ground I lost the one girl I'd found
I guess I'll have to change my plan I should have realized there'd be another man Why did I buy those blue pajamas Before that big affaire began?
My boiling point is much too low For me to try to be a fly Lothario I think I'll crawl right back and into my shell Dwelling in my personal hell
I'll have to change my plan around I lost the one girl I've found.
