X-tus Me And My Shadow
Words by Billy Rose, Music by Al Jolson and Dave Dreyer (1927)       Back to: Lyrics Index
H. Caecilia

Shades of night are falling and I'm lonely
Standing on the corner feeling blue
Sweethearts out for fun
Pass me one by one

Guess I'll wind up like I always do,
With only...

Me and my Shadow
Strolling down the avenue
Me and my shadow
Not a soul to tell our troubles to

And when it's twelve o'clock
We climb the stair
We never knock
For nobody's there

Just

Me and my Shadow
All alone and feeling blue!

When the sun sets on the far horizen
And the parlor lamps begin to glow
Jim and Jack and John
Put their slippers on

They're all set
But we're still on the go,
So lonely...

Me and my Shadow
Strolling down the avenue
Me and my shadow
Not a soul to tell our troubles to

And when it's twelve o'clock
We climb the stair
We never knock
For nobody's there

Just

Me and my Shadow
All alone and feeling blue!

Heilige Geest
