Everything Happens To Me

Written By: Thomas Adair / Matt Dennis

 

I make a date for golf
And you can bet your life it rains
I try to throw a party
And the guy upstairs complains
I guess Iíll go through life
Just catching colds and missin trains
Everything happens to me

I never miss a thing
Iíve had the measles and the mumps
Every time I play an ace
My partner always trumps
I guess Iím just a fool
Who never looks
Before she jumps
Everything happens to me

At first my heart thought you
Could break this jinx for me
That love could turn the trick to indespair
But now I just canít fool
This head that thinks for me
Iíve mortgaged all my castles in the air

Iíve telegraphed and phoned
I sent an airmail special too
Your answer was goodbye
There was even postage due
I fell in love just once
And then it had to be with you
Everything happens to me
