I Can't Get Started Lyrics

by Frank Sinatra

I'm a glum one, it's explainable
I met someone unattainable
Life's a bore, the world is my oyster no more

All the papers where I lead the news
With my capers now will spread the news
Superman turns out to be flash-in-the-pan

I've flown around the world in a plane
Designed the latest IBM brain
But lately I'm so downhearted
'Cause I can't get started with you

In Cincinatti or in Rangoon
I simply smile and all the gals swoon
Their whims I've more than just charted
But I can't get started with you

Oh tell me why am I no kick to you
I who'd always stick to you
Fly through thin and thick to you

Tell me why I'm taboo each time
I chanced to see Franklin D
He always said, hi buddy to me
And with queens I've a la carted
But I can't get started with you
