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
