Shades of night are falling and I'm lonely Standing on the corner feeling blue Sweethearts out for fun Pass me by one by one Guess I'll wind up like I always do With only.... Me and my shadow Strolling down the avenue Oh, me and my shadow Not a soul to tell our troubles to And when it's twelve o'clock we climb the stairs We never knock 'cause nobody's there Just me and my shadow All alone and feeling blue When the sun sets on the far horizon, And the parlour lamps begin to glow Jim and Jack and John Put their slippers on. They're all set but we're still on the go So lonely.... Me and my shadow Strolling down the avenue Oh, me and my shadow Not a soul to tell our troubles to And when it's twelve o'clock we climb the stairs We never knock 'cause nobody's there Just me and my shadow All alone and feeling blue **************************** As recorded by Frank Sinatra & Sammy Davis Jr.: SD: Like the wallpaper sticks to the wall FS: Like the seashore clings to the sea SD: Like you'll never get rid of your shadow Frank, you'll never get rid of me FS: Let all the others fight and fuss BOTH: Whatever happens, we've got us FS: Me SD: We're closer than pages that stick in a book FS: And my shadow SD: We're closer than ripples that play in a brook FS: Strolling down SD: Wherever you find him, you'll find me, just look FS: The avenue SD: Closer than a miser or the bloodhounds to Liza SD: Me FS: We're closer than smog when it clings to L.A. SD: And my shadow FS: We're closer than Bobby is to J.F.K. BOTH: Not a soul can bust this team in two We stick together like glue FS: And when it's sleeping time SD: That's when we rise FS: We start to swing SD: Swing to the skies FS: Our clocks don't chime SD: What a surprise BOTH: They ring-a-ding-ding! Happy New Year! FS: Me SD: And now to repeat what I said at the start FS: And my shadow SD: They'll need a large crowbar to break us apart BOTH: 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 FS: We'll wind up at Jilly's right after Toot's Shore Life is gonna be wee-wow-wheee! SD: Here comes the party! BOTH: For my shadow and meeeeeeee-me-meeeeee! SPOKEN: SD: Say Frank? FS: What is it, Sam? SD: Do me a favour? FS: What d'ya you want, now? SD: Would you mind taking it just one more time? FS: From the top? SD: No! From the ending! FS: Wonderful! BOTH: 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 SD: Yeah! FS: Life is gonna be wee-wow-wheee! SD: Wow! BOTH: For my shadow and meeeee-eeeeee-eeee-eeeeee! SPOKEN: SD: Frank? FS: Oh, forget it Sam SD: Alright (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2006)
