ALL OF MY LIFE (from 'Do Re Mi') Music: Jule Styne - Lyrics: Betty Comden and Adolph Green - Conductor: Lehman Engel Phil Silvers All of my life I've been dreamin' the wrong dream, Hopin' the wrong hope, singin' the wrong song, All of my life. All of my life I've been pickin' the wrong horse, Sayin' the wrong things, makin' the wrong bets, All of my life. I thought there was nothin' to life, Just wait for that lucky hunch - Just throw that lucky punch - wham! You too can be the champ. Yesterday you batted zero; hit a homer, you're a hero. I thought there was nothin' to life; Just wait for that lucky hunch. There must be somethin' more to it ... Somewhere along the line, I blew it. All of my life I've been meeting the wrong crowd, Wearin' the wrong tie, dancin' the wrong steps, All of my life. All of my life I've been off on the wrong beam, Backing the wrong team, dreaming the wrong dream, All of my life ... all of my life ... All of my no-good life! (Spoken:) All right folks, step right up and meet a loser! Come on, it's novelty night! Anybody can meet a winner; show a little guts - shake hands with a loser. Meet the champ of the losers. Come on, I don't mind - I must like losin', I've been doin' it so long. On the day I was born, I went into trainin'. I was groomin' myself for oblivion. And I made it. Funny? Funny?? Want to hear a good one? I even lost my wife. Kay? Where are you? Are the kids home from school yet? What kids? I got no time for kids, I'm too busy tryin' to get a table! Funny? Funny?? I could keep you screamin' like this for hours! Hold it, hold it, wait a minute, this check is mine. Hold it, this is Hubie Cram, I reached. Eddie? Lend me twenty, I'll give it back to you in no time. Eddie, come on. Eddie! What? Take a job? What job? This job? Right here? Are you nuts? I don't want this job! I want THAT job! Way up there! The one I can't reach!The short cut! Look out, step aside, they can't see me. Here I am, folks, the loser. No magic, no hocus-pocus. Nothin' up my sleeve. Nothin'. But absolutely nothin'! (Sung:) I thought the American dream was wait for that one big break. Just give the dice a shake - wow! You too can be on top, be an overnight sensation! 'Meet The Press' and 'Face The Nation'! I thought the American dream was wait for that one big break. There must be somethin' more to it - Somewhere along the line, I blew it. All of my life I've been learnin' the wrong tricks, Pullin' the wrong strings, makin' the wrong moves, All of my life. All of my life I've been off on the wrong beam, Backing the wrong team, dreaming the wrong dream, All of my life ... All of my life ... All of my whole damn life!
