I've flown around the world in a plane 
I've settled revolutions in Spain 
And the North Pole, I have charted 
Still I can't get started with you 

On the golf course, I'm under par 
Metro Goldwyn have asked me to star 
I've got a house, a showplace 
Still I can't get no place with you 

'Cause you're so supreme 
Lyrics I write of you, I dream 
Dream day and night of you 
And I scheme just for the sight of you 
Baby, what good does it do? 

I've been consulted by Franklin D 
Greta Garbo has had me to tea 
Still I'm broken-hearted 

'Cause I can't get started with you

Bunny Berigan

Roland Bernard "Bunny" Berigan (November 2, 1908 – June 2, 1942) was an American jazz trumpeter who rose to fame during the swing era, but whose career and influence were shortened by a losing battle with alcoholism that ended with his early death at age 33 from cirrhosis. Although he composed some jazz instrumentals like "Chicken and Waffles" and "Blues, Berigan was best known for his virtuoso jazz trumpeting. His 1937 classic recording "I Can't Get Started" was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1975. more »
