Billie Holiday – Just One Of Those Things lyrics

Cole Porter

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 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, goodbye, dear, and amen! Here's hoping we meet now and then.
It was great fun, but it was just one of those things!
