Just One of Those Things (Fitzgerald Ella)

As Dorothy Parker once said To her boyfriend, "fare thee well" As Columbus announced When he knew he was bounced, "It was swell, Isabel, swell" As Abelard said to Eloise, "Don't forget to drop a line to me, please" As Juliet cried, in her Romeo's ear, "Romeo, why not face the fact, my dear" It was just one of those things Just one of those crazy flings One of those bells that now and then rings Just one of those things It was just one of those nights Just one of those fabulous flights A trip to the moon on gossamer wings Just one of those things If we'd thought a bit, of the end of it When we started painting the town We'd have been aware that our love affair Was too hot, not to cool down So good-bye, dear, and amen Here's hoping we meet now and then It was great fun But it was just one of those things If we'd thought a bit, of the end of it When we started painting the town We'd have been aware that our love affair Was too hot, not to cool down So good-bye, dear, and amen Here's hoping we meet now and then It was great fun But it was just one of those things Just one of those things
