Nobody’s Chasing Me by Cole Porter

The breeze is chasing the zephyr
The moon is chasing the sea
The bull is chasing the heifer
But nobody’s chasing me.

The cook is chasing the chicken
The pea wakes up, pee-wee-wee
The cat is taking a lickin’
But nobody’s taking me.

Nobody wants to own me
And I object
Nobody wants to phone me
Even collect.

The leopard’s chasing the leopard
The chimp, some chap chimpanzee
The sheep is chasing the shepherd
But nobody’s chasing me.
Nobody’s chasing me.

The flood is chasing the levy
The wolf is out on a spree
The Ford is chasing the Chevy
But nobody’s chasing me.

The bee is chasing petunias
The queen is chasing the bee
The worm is chasing the lettuce
But nobody’s chasing me.

Each night I get the mirror
From off the shelf
Each night I’m getting queerer,
Chasing myself.

Ravel is chasing Debussy
The avid chases the pee
The gander’s chasing the goosey
But nobody’s goosing me.
Nobody’s chasing me.

The pa is chasing the papa
Papa is chasing Mama
Monsieur is chasing Madame
But nobody’s chasing moi.

The dove, each moment, is older
The lark speaks my petite
Tristan is chasing Isolde
But nobody’s chasing me.

Although I may be Juno,
Believe it or not,
I got a lot of you-know
And you-know-what.

The snake, with passion, is shaking
The pooch is chasing the flea
The moose his love call is making
But nobody’s making me.
Nobody’s chasing me!
