Song Meaning
Verse 1
Why did I wander
Hereand there and yonder,
Wasting precious time
For no reason or rhyme?
Isn't it a pity!
Isn't it a crime!
My journey is ended,
Everything is splendid;
Meeting you today
Has given me a wonderful idea
Here I stay!
Verse 2
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!
Verse 3
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!
Verse 4
Imagine all the lonely years we've wasted,
You with the neighbours,
I at silly labours!
What joys untasted,
You readin Heine,
Me somewhere in China!
Verse 5
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!
Verse 6
Imagine all the lonely years we've wasted,
Fishing for salmon,
Losing at backgammon!
What joys untasted,
My nights were sour,
Spent with Schopenhauer!
Verse 7
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!
