I CAN'T GET STARTED WITH YOU

I've flown around the world in a plane,
Settled revolutions in Spain,
The north pole I charted,
Still I can't get charted with you.

On the golf course I'm under par
Metrogoldwin's asked me to star
My house is a showcase,
Still I can't get no place with you

Chorus:
'Cause you're so supreme,
Lyrics I write of you I dream,
Scheme just for the sight of you
Baby it's true, what good does it do?

I've been consulted by Franklin D
Greta Garbo's asked me to tea
(rats I forgot this line)
Still I can't get started with you.

Oh man I almost had it. I never sang it but Tex did. Oh for the memory or yesterday.

Oh well someone will finish it, I hope, cheers Chance

That's Ella's version, Sorca, and I've never seen some of those lyrics, but...

she did give me the penultimate line of the last verse:

"But I'm still down-hearted 'cause I can't get started with you.

Great Gershwin tune.

Cheers, Chance

Steve Tyrell's version of that verse, from his first CD of a couple of years ago:

I've been consulted by President C.
You know Hillary's had me to tea
But I'm all broken-hearted
'cause I can't get started with you.
