I've flown around the world in a plane;
I've settled revolutions in Spain;
The north pole I have charted,
But I can't get started with you.

Around the golf course, I'm under par,
And all the movies want me to star;
I've got a house, a show place,
But I get no place with you.

You're so supreme, lyrics I write of you,
Scheme just for a sight of you,
Dream both day and night of you,
And what good does it do?

In nineteen twenty-nine, I sold short;
In England, I'm presented at court,
But you've got me down-hearted,
'Cause I can't get started with you.

(Instrumental Interlude:  1 Verse)
