(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.

(Melody:)
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.

(Bridge:)
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.
