Me & My Shadow Lyrics

by Frank Sinatra

Like the wallpaper sticks to the wall
Like the seashore clings to the sea
Like you'll never get rid of your shadow

Frank, you'll never get rid of me
Let all the others fight and fuss
Whatever happens, we've got us

Me and my shadow
We're closer than pages that stick in a book
We're closer than ripples that play in a brook

Strolling down the avenue
Wherever you find him, you'll find me, just look
Closer than a miser or the bloodhound's to Liza

Me and my shadow
We're closer than smog when it clings to L.A.
We're closer than Bobby is to JFK
Not a soul can bust this team in two
We stick together like glue

And when it's sleeping time that's when we rise
We start to swing, swing to the skies
Our clocks don't 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
They'll need a large crowbar to break us apart
We're alone but far from blue

Before we get finished, we'll make the town roar
We'll make all the late spots and then a few more
We'll wind up at Jilly's right after Toot's 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, wonderful

And while we are swinging, to mention a few
We'll drop in at Danny's, The Little Club too
But wind up at Jilly's, whatever we do
Life is gonna be we-wow-whee
For my shadow and me
Frank? Oh, forget it Sam
