He Was Too Good To Me

Composed for (but dropped from) the Broadway Musical "Simple Simon".


Music by Richard Rodgers, Lyrics by Lorenz Hart, 1930 



There goes my young intended,
The thing is ended,
Regrets are vain.
I’ll never find
Another quite as sweet
And we’ll never meet again.
I was a good sport
Bade him Farewell
Eyes dim
But why complain?

He was too good to me,
How can I get along now?
So close he stood to me
Everything seems all wrong now.
He used to bring me the Sun
Making me smile,
That was his style.

When I was mean to him
He’d never say "go ‘way now",
I was a Queen to him,
Whose gonna make me gay now?
It’s only natural...I’m blue,
He was too good to be true.
