WHY COULDN'T IT BE POOR LITTLE ME (Music: Isham Jones / Lyrics: Gus Kahn) Isham Jones & Ray Miller's Orch. (Instr.) - 1924 Marion Harris - 1924 Frank Crumit - 1925 Stomp Six (Instr.) - 1925 Ben Bernie & His Hotel Roosevelt Orch. (Instr.) - 1925 Fletcher Henderson & His Orch. (Instr.) - 1925 Benny Goodman & His Orch. (Instr.) - 1933 The day I fell in love with you Was just a hard luck day for me Still, there was nothing else to do I guess it simply had to be And yet it hardly seems quite fair That I should throw my heart away There'll be someone to make you care And you're bound to fall someday Say, why couldn't it be, shouldn't it be I wonder why couldn't it be poor little me Your just the kind I try to find most everywhere And still I sigh wondering why you never care Please tell me why wouldn't I do, wouldn't I do I must have found somebody too, maybe it's you Sure as you live, you're sure to give your love to someone Tell me why couldn't it be poor little me (Instrumental Break) I thought that love was meant for two Until I fell in love alone I would have run away from you If my heart had only known I know there's no use running now I simply couldn't get away So I keep hoping that somehow You'll care a little bit someday Say, why couldn't it be, shouldn't it be I wonder why couldn't it be poor little me Your just the kind I try to find most everywhere And still I sigh wondering why you never care Please tell me why wouldn't I do, wouldn't I do I must have found somebody too, maybe it's you Sure as you live, you're sure to give your love to someone Tell me why couldn't it be poor little, poor little me (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2017)
