As recorded by FRANK SINATRA: Black cats creep across my path until I'm almost mad I must have roused the Devil's wrath 'cause all my luck is bad I make a date for golf and you can bet your life it rains I try to give a party and the guy upstairs complains I guess I'll go through life just catching colds and missing trains Everything happens to me I never miss a thing, I've had the measles and the mumps And every time I play an ace, my partner always trumps I guess I'm just a fool who never looks before he jumps Everything happens to me At first my heart thought you could break this jinx for me That love would turn the trick to end despair But now I just can't fool this head that thinks for me So I've mortgaged all my castles in the air I've telegraphed and phoned, sent an air mail special too Your answer was "Goodbye", there was even postage due I fell in love just once and then it had to be with you Everything happens to me I've never drawn a sweepstake or a bank night at a show I thought perhaps this time I'd won, but Lady Luck said "No" And though it breaks my heart, I'm not surprised to see you go Everything happens to me Everything happens to me ++++++++++ As recorded by JULIE LONDON: I make a date for golf and you can bet your life it rains I try to give a party and the guy upstairs complains I guess I'll go through life just catching colds and missing trains Everything happens to me I never missed a thing, I've had the measles and the mumps And every time I play an ace, my partner always trumps I guess I'm just a fool who never looks before she jumps Everything happens to me At first I thought that you could break this jinx for me That you could turn the trick to end despair But I can't fool this foolish heart that thinks for me So I've mortgaged all my castles in the air I've telegraphed, I've phoned, sent an air mail special too Your answer was goodbye and there was even postage due I fell in love just once and then it had to be with you Everything happens to me Everything happens to me (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - December 2011)
