CHANGING MY TUNE (Music: George Gershwin / Lyrics: Ira Gershwin) Judy Garland - 1946 Dick Haymes - 1946 Artie Shaw & His Orch. (vocal: Mel Torme & The Mel-Tones) - 1946 Vaughn Monroe & His Orch. (vocal: Vaughn Monroe & Betty Norton) - 1946 Larry Clinton & His Orch. - 1946 Betty Grable (feat. in the film "The Shocking Miss Pilgrim") - 1947 Ted Heath & His Music (Instr.) - 1955 Barbara Cook & Anthony perkins - 1966 Cynthia Crane - 1997 As performed by BETTY GRABLE in the 1947 film "The Shocking Miss Pilgrim": Yesterday the skies were black and I was blue Yesterday, alas alack, I thought I was through But knock on wood, my job looks good And having found a dwelling My happiness is beyond the telling Castles were crumbling and daydreams were tumbling December was battling with June But on this bright afternoon Guess I’ll be changing my tune Kept on despairing beyond any caring If I jumped out of a balloon But I’m arranging from now To be changing my tune At last the skies are bright and shiny It’s a human world once more Yesterday’s troubles are tiny What were you worried for Wanted a permit to make me a hermit To grumble and glare at the moon But I’m arranging from now To be changing my tune At last the skies are bright and shiny It’s a human world once more Yesterday’s troubles are tiny What was I worried for Wanted a permit to make me a hermit To grumble and glare at the Moon But I’m arranging from now To be changing my tune No more the feeling that my world is reeling No fearing I'll fall in a swoon Problems are all picayune That's why I'm changing my tune Out like a sailor adrift on a whaler A-sailing into a typhoon But I’m arranging from now To be changing my tune Mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm and shiny It’s a human world once more Yesterday’s troubles are tiny What was I worried for No more resentment, I’m full of contentment Afloat on a dreamy lagoon And I’m arranging from now To be changing my tune (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 2017)
