I can be funny in a maudlin way

Don’t mean to but it’s sad;

Birds got it damn right their day full of songs

My shouldn’t we sing instead?

I’m stuck up all the day

Fed up with my lot

But I know what I have: Look at what I got

I got rhythm, I got music

And twinkle toes!

Who could ask for anything more?

I’ve got starlight I’ve got the mood

Who could ask for anything more?

Old Man Trouble, I don’t mind him

He can’t hear a word I say

I’ve got starlight, I’ve got sweet dreams,

Sock it to him,

maybe he’ll get it in the end.

music and lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin
