Just One Of Those Things

As Dorothy Parker once said to her boyfriend

 "Fare thee well," 

As Columbus announced when he knew he was bounced 

"It was swell, Isabelle, swell" 

As Abelard said to Heloise

 "Don't forget to drop a line to me, please," 

As Juliet cried in her Romeo's ear 

"Romeo, why not face the fact, my dear?"

It was just one of those things 

Just one of those crazy flings 

One of those bells that now and then rings

Just one of those things 

It was just one of those nights 

Just one of those fabulous flights 

A trip to the moon on gossamer wings 

Just one of those things 

If we'd thought a bit 

Of the end of it 

When we started painting the town 

We'd have been aware 

That our love affair 

Was too hot not to cool down 

So good-bye, dear, and amen 

Here's hoping we meet now and then 

It was great fun 

But it was just one of those things
