WHY NOT NOW? Parker as rec by Dennis Hale & Marion Davis w Oscar Rabin & his Band 1950 [dh] First you say you miss me, Then you say you don't, Make as if to kiss me, Suddenly you won't! It's so heartbreaking, I find, Why don't you make up your mind? You know you're gonna love me some day, Why not now? [md] You'll think a lot more of me some day, Why not now? [dh] What's the use of pretending we're merely friends? [md] Maybe that's the way it started, not the way it ends! [both] We're gonna do some groom and briding. You and I, [dh] But while you're wasting time deciding, Weeks go by! So put your lips up close to mine' I'll show you how! [both] You know you're gonna love me some day, Why not now? [md] Hey, just a minute! Whered'you get off with that stuff about me falling in love with you? [dh] Well I like that! Now how about those hankies and socks you gave me for Christmas? Why, that proves that you care for me! [md] It doesn't prove anything of the sort! It just happens that they were too small for my father! [dh] Yes, well what about that time on new year's eve under the mistletoe; Why you fairly grabbed me if I remember! [md] Yes, but that was to avoid that friend of yours with the handlebar moustache! it looked like a Christmas tree with bits of cake and turkey! [dh] Then can you explain why you danced with me more than anyone else that night? [md] Of course I can! Because after long last, I've learned to follow your dance routine and to avoid your very footsteps! [dh] Okay, so I'm wrong and you don't love me! [md] Who says I don't love you, dope? [dh] Well, I thought that you - [md] Trouble with you is you never ever know when I'm kidding! [dh] Oh darling, you're such a funny girl, you know; You should stop all this all the time! So put your lips up close to mine' I'll show you how! [both] You know you're gonna love me some day, Why not now? (Transcribed by Peter Akers - November 2011)
