I Guess I’ll Have to Change My Plan (1929)
(m) Arthur Schwartz (w) Howard Dietz (I) Revue The Little Show by Clifton Webb (P) Rudy Vallee (RR) 1953 Film The Band Wagon by Fred Astaire & Jack Buchanan
I guess I’ll have to change my plan
I should have realized there’d be another man.
I overlooked that point completely until the big affair began.
Before I knew where I was at
I found myself upon the shelf and that was that.
I tried to reach the moon but when I got there,
All that I could get was the air.
My feet are back upon the ground, I lost the one girl I’d found.
Refrain 2: I guess I’ll have to change my plan
I should have realized there’d be another man!
Why did I buy those blue pajamas before the big affair began?
My boiling point is much too low
For me to try to be a fly Lothario.
I think I’ll crawl right back and into my shell,
Dwelling in my personal Hell.
I’ll have to change my plan around, I’ve lost the one girl I found.
