Why did I wander
Here and there and yonder
Wasting precious time
For no reason or rhyme

Isn't it a pity
Isn't it a crime
My journeys ended
Everything is splendid

Meeting you today
Has given me a wonderful idea
Here I stay
It's a funny thing

I look at you
I get a thrill
I never knew
Isn't it a pity

We never met before?
Here we are at last
It's like a dream
The two of us

A perfect team
Isn't it a pity
We never met before?
Imagine all the lonely years you wasted

Fishing for salmon
Losing at backgammon
What joys un-tasted
My nights were sour

Spent with Schopenhauer
Let's forget the past
Let's both agree
That I'm for you

And you're for me
And it's such a pity
We never, never met before

It's an awful pity
We never, never met before
