Frank Sinatra - "Me My Shadow" lyrics

Writer(s): dave dreyer - al jolson - billy rose

(this is the duet with sammy davis, jr.)

Like the wallpaper sticks to the wall

Like the seashore clings to the sea

Like youll never get rid of your shadow

Frank, youll never get rid of me

Let all the others fight and fuss

Whatever happens, weve got us.

Me and my shadow

Were closer than pages that stick in a book

Were closer than ripples that play in a brook

Strolling down the avenue

Wherever you find him, youll find me, just look

Closer than a miser or the bloodhounds ' ' ' ' '

Me and my shadow

Were closer than smog when it clings to l.a.

Were closer than bobby is to j.f.k.

Not a soul can bust this team in two

We stick together like glue

And when its sleeping time

Thats when we rise

We start to swing

Swing to the skies

Our clocks dont chime

What a surprise

They ring-a-ding-ding!
Happy new year!

Me and my shadow

And now to repeat what I said at the start

Theyll need a large crowbar to break us apart

Were alone but far from blue

Before we get finished, well make the town roar

Well make all the late spots, and then a few more

Well wind up at jillys right after toots shore

Life is gonna be we-wow-whee!

(here comes the party!)

For my shadow and me!

Say frank'

What is it, sam'

Do me a favor'

What do you want, now'

Would you mind taking it, just one more time'

From the top'

No! from the ending!


And while we are swinging, to mention a few

Well drop in at dannys, the little club too

But wind up at jillys, whatever we do

Life is gonna be we-wow-whee!


For my shadow and me!


Oh, forget it sam.
