I Can't Get Started

Lyrics:Ira Gershwin
Music:Vernon Duke

The song was publishe 1936.

The song was sung in "Ziegfeld Follies of 1936",
and afterwards Bob Hope sang.

Bob Hope's "Thanks For The Memory" is funny enough
but it became a fine standard.
Thus this tune might have been on the same way to be a standard also.

Now, we have a lot stuff to recommend for this famous tune. Just relax.

Probably the three most popular vintage recorded versions
were by Bunny Berigan.
Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra.

I'm a glum one, it's explainable,
I met someone unattainable
Life's a bore, the world is my oyster no more
All the papers where I led the news
With my capers, now will spread the news
Superman turns out to be flash-in-the-pan

I've flown around the world in a plane,
Designed the latest IBM brain
But lately I'm so downhearted,
'Cause I can't get started with you

In Cincinatti or in Rangoon,
I simply smile, all the gals swoon
Their whims I've more than just charted,
But I can't get started with you

Oh, tell me why am I no kick to you,
I who'd always stick to you
Fly through thin and thick to you,
Tell me why I'm taboo.

Each time I chanced to see Franklin D.,
He always said, Hi buddy to me
And with queens I've a la carted,
But I can't get started with you

You can never capture it again. "
