I'M LIKE A FISH OUT OF WATER From the film "Hollywood Hotel" (1938) (Richard Whiting / Johnny Mercer) Dick Powell & Rosemary Lane - 1938 DICK POWELL: Ev'rybody says I'm witty I can even please my boss, I took Pelmanism to give me magnetism So I could put myself across And so it really seems a pity You put me at a total loss I'm like a fish out of water when I'm with you Just like J.P. Morgan swingin' it on the organ Or Dizzy Dean with no ballyhoo Everytime that I'm with you I'm like a fish out of water when you're around I'm like Eddie Cantor doing a bandy banter Or Colonel Lindbergh upon the ground Whenever you're around I feel so small and I get red as a peach I trip and fall, I'm all hands and feet I'm quite a card and a cut-up around the boys But you make me shut-up and lose my poise It's a funny thing what love can do I'm like a fish out of water with you ROSEMARY LANE: Though I'm good at conversation Though I've been around a lot Though I make a showing to keep the party going When the party's not so hot In spite of my sophistication You put me in an awful spot I'm like a fish out of water when I'm with you Like Marian Tally doing a Rudy Vallee Or Mickey Mouse as an ingenue Everytime that I'm with you I'm like a fish out of water when you're around I'm like Ginger Rogers running the Brooklyn Dodgers I'm on most unfamiliar ground Whenever you're around My whole life through I've always known what to say But now with you, it all goes away Exactly like Man O' War as an also ran Or like Sally Rand if she lost her fan You can make me feel the same way too I'm like a fish out of water with you RL: I feel all wet and it's no wonder I do DP: That's how I get when I'm with you BOTH: So if I act like a dummy and seem insane And won't even come in out of the rain DP: It's a funny thing what love can do BOTH: I'm like a fish out of water with you (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - March 23rd, 2003)
