Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off
Lyrics by Ira Gershwin; Music by George GershwinThings have come to a pretty pass♫
Our romance is growing flat, ♫
For you like this and the other♫
While I go for this and that, ♫Goodness knows what the end will be♫
Oh I don’t know where I’m at♫
It looks as if we two will never be one♫
Something must be done: ♫

You say either and I say either, ♫
You say neither and I say neither♫
Either, either Neither, neither♫
Let’s call the whole thing off. ♫

You like potato and I like potahto♫
You like tomato and I like tomahto♫
Potato, potahto, Tomato, tomahto. ♫
Let’s call the whole thing off♫

But oh, if we call the whole thing off, then we must part♫
And oh, if we ever part, then that might break my heart♫
So if you like pyjamas and I like pyjahmas, ♫
I’ll wear pyjamas and give up pyajahmas♫
For we know we need each other so we♫
Better call the whole thing off♫
Let’s call the whole thing off. ♫

You say laughter and I say larfter♫
You say after and I say arfter♫
Laughter, larfter after arfter♫
Let’s call the whole thing off, ♫

You like vanilla and I like vanilla♫
You saspiralla, and I saspirella♫
Vanilla vanella chocolate strawberry♫
Let’s call the whole thing off♫

But oh if we call the whole thing of then we must part♫
And oh, if we ever part, then that might break my heart♫

So if you go for oysters and I go for ersters♫
I’ll order oysters and cancel the ersters♫
For we know we need each other so we♫
Better call the calling off off, ♫
Let’s call the whole thing off. ♫

I say father, and you say pater, ♫
I saw mother and you say mater♫
Pater, mater Uncle, auntie♫
Let’s call the whole thing off. ♫

I like bananas and you like banahnahs♫
I say Havana and I get Havahnah♫
Bananas, banahnahs Havana, Havahnah♫
Go your way, I’ll go mine♫

So if I go for scallops and you go for lobsters, ♫
So all right no contest we’ll order lobster♫
For we know we need each other so we♫
Better call the calling off off, ♫
Let’s call the whole thing off. ♫
