Why Try To Change Me Now

Saul Rubin Solo Guitar

Cy Coleman /Joseph A. McCarthy

I’m sentimental, so I walk in the rain
I’ve got some habits even I can’t explain
Go to the corner and I end up in Spain
Why try to change me now?

I sit and daydream, I got daydreams galore
Cigarette ashes, there they go on the floor
Go away weekends, leave my keys in the door
Why try to change me now?

Why can’t I be more conventional?
People talk and they stare, so I try
But that can’t be ’cause I can’t see
My strange little world just go passing me by.

Let people wonder, let ’em laugh, let ’em frown
You know I’ll love you till the moon’s upside down
Don’t you remember I was always your clown
Why try to change me now?
