YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY OYSTER IN THE STEW Joe Burke & Harold Spina Thomas "Fats" Waller & his Rhythm rec Aug 17th 1934 New York You're not the only oyster in the stew, Not the only tea leaf in the tea; However, I'm convinced, Completely, fully, firmly convinced, You're the only one for me! You're not the only wrinkle in the prune, You're not the only apple on the tree; Judging all the facts, Perfectly logical positive facts, You're the only one for me! So well supplied, the first things I see, (oh mercy baby!) Your smile is refreshing, kisses so unique! When I'm 'round I'm susceptible and weak, I loves ya, I loves ya, so to speak! There's seven million people in New York, Fifty million Frenchmen in Paree, Not to mention serfs, And English, Irish, Italians and Turks, But you're the only one for me! There's seven million people in New York, Fifty million Frenchmen in Paree, Not to mention English, Irish, Turks, You're the only one for me! Oh, (scat), You're not the only oyster in the stew!
