(Intro Verse:)
Black cats creep across my path until I'm almost mad;
I must have roused the devil's wrath
'Cause all my luck is bad.

I make a date for golf, and you can bet your life it rains;
I try to give a party, and the guy upstairs complains.
I guess I'll go thru life just catching colds and missing trains?
Ev'rything happens to me.

I never miss a thing - I've had the measles and the mumps,
And ev'rytime I play an ace, my partner always trumps.
I guess I'm just a fool who never looks before he jumps?
Ev'rything happens to me.

At first my heart thought you could break this jinx for me,
That love would turn the trick to end despair;
But now I just can't fool this head that thinks for me?
I've mortgaged all my castles in the air
I've telegraphed and phoned, and sent an airmail special, too;
Your answer was "Good bye" and there was even postage due.
I fell in love just once, and then it had to be with you?
Ev'rything happens to me, 
Ev'rything happens to me.
