They're writing songs of love, but not for me.
A lucky star's above, but not for me.
With love to lead the way
I've found more clouds of grey
than any Russain play could guarantee.
I was a fool to fall and get that way;
Heigh-ho! Alas! And also, lack-a-day!
Although I can't dismiss the mem'ry of his kiss,
I guess he's not for me.

He's knocking on a door, but not for me.
He'll plan a two by four, but not for me.
I know that love's a game;
I'm puzzled, just the same,
was I the moth or flame?
I'm all at sea.
It all began so well, but what an end!
This is the time a fella needs a friend,
when ev'ry happy plot ends with the marriage knot,
and there's no knot for me.

It's intended to be a bit self-mocking and amused with one's own foibles, darnit. Connick fucked up his cover of it.
  • I'd like to fuck Harry Connick, Jr...

    Oh wait. That's not what you meant. Damn.
    • Please do, especially if you can keep him from making self-pitying versions of glib songs!
  • Actually, I'm now hearing Judi Densch sing it, with great irony, in my own little skull. Thank you.
  • <--- out of the loop. All I can think of vis a vis Harry Connick, jr. is "bad singer, good actor"...and I don't even know if that's true or not, or whether my brain wires are getting crossed again.
    • S'funny, I have him in my head the other way around: "Pretty good singer, abyssmal actor."

      • Yah. I can't for the life of me think of why I think he is. Maybe I should check imdb.com but really...who knows? Faint memories are odd things and maybe should just be left alone and not questioned too much, lest they get surly and go away completely. :)
        • You probably are thinking 'when harry met sally'- the soundtrack to which includes his melodramatically sappy cover of 'but not for me'.
  • You should hear the album his father Harry Senior (former New Orleans DA) recorded. Imagine similar delivery with the voice of a frog. (I'm not dissing -- I listen to it in the car quite frequently.)
    • Hah! I didn't know the senior Mr. Connick had done an album- now I'm curious. Thanks for pointing me at it!
      • Here it is. Poor Harry Sr. -- at least he has one star!
        • Okay, so I clicked on the link.
          The link you typed out, or at least cut and pasted.

          And you say you don't write horror anymore.
          • --and yeah, the above was meant to be ironic/sarcastic: the samples I listened to weren't terrible, and I suspect if I'd actually known the singer I'd've gotten a serious kick out of them.
            Sigh, I suck at communicating irony in text.
