It Never Entered My Mind (1940)

Once I laughed when I heard you saying
That I’d be playing solitaire, uneasy in my easy chair
It never entered my mind

Once you told me I was mistaken
That I’d awaken with the sun
And order orange juice for one, it never entered my mind

You have what I lack myself
And now I even have to scratch my back myself.

Once you warned me that if you scorned me
I’d sing a lonely prayer again
And wish that you where there again
To get into my hair again, it never entered my mind
