Just One of Those Things

Lyrics ,Music:Cole Porter

The song was publishe 1935.

Porter had written the score for Jubilee while on an extended sea cruise
in the early part of 1935: however, in September 1935 while he was visiting
a friend's farm in Ohio with Jubilee's librettist Moss Hart,
the latter mentioned that the play's second act required an additional song,
and Porter had "Just One of Those Things" completed
by the following morning
(he had previously used the title for a song intended for but not
featured in the 1930 musical The New Yorkers—
apart from the title the two songs are distinct).
Porter's original lyric lacked an adjective for the line
"a trip to the moon on gossamer wings":
"gossamer" would be suggested by his friend, Ed Tauch.

"Just One of Those Things" was featured in two Doris Day musical films,
Lullaby of Broadway (1951) and Young at Heart (1954),
and also in the film version of Can-Can (1960) in which it's performed
by Maurice Chevalier.


Lullaby of Broadway

Young at Heart


It was just one of those things
Just one of those crazy flings
One of those bells that now and then rings
It was one of those things

It was just one of those nights
Just one of those fabulous flights
A trip to the moon on gossamer wings
It was one of those things

If we'd thought a bit about the end of it
When we started paintin' the town
We'd have been aware that our love affair
Was too hot, not to cool down

So good-bye, dear, good-bye and amen
Here's hopin' we'll meet now and then
It was great fun
But it was just one of those things
