Isn't It A Pity Lyrics

(Intro verse:)
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 journey's ended, everything is splendid;
Meeting you today
Has given me a wonderful idea - here I stay.

(Melody:)
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?

(Bridge 1:)
Imagine all the lonely years we've wasted
You with the neighbors, I at silly labors -
What joys untasted,
You reading Heine, me somewhere in China.

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.

(Bridge 2:)
Imagine all the lonely year's we've wasted,
Fishing for salmon, losing at backgammon.
What joys untasted,
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.

Song writer(s): Ira Gershwin, George Gershwin
