I Can’t Get Started

By V. Duke & I. Gershwin

I’ve been around the world in a plane
Settled revolutions in Spain
The North Pole I have charted
But can’t get started with you

At the golf course I’m under par
Metro-Goldwyn wants me to star
I’ve got a house and a show place
But can’t get no place with you

You’re so supreme, the lyrics I write of you
Dream, dream, day and night of you
Scheme just for the sight of you
But what good will it do?

I’ve been consulted by Franklin D
Even Gable had me to tea
But now I’m broken hearted
‘Cause I just can’t get started with you

You’re so supreme, the lyrics I write of you
Dream, dream, day and night of you
Scheme just for the sight of you
But what good does it do?

I’ve been consulted by Franklin D
Even Basic had me to tea
But now I’m broken hearted
‘Cause I just can’t get started with you
