    Lyrics

    (Matt Dennis/Tom Adair)

    (1956 Version...)

    Black cats creep across my path, until I'm almost mad
    I must have roused the Devil's wrath, 'cause all my luck is bad
    I make a date for golf, and you can bet your life it rains
    I try to give a party, but the guy upstairs complains
    I guess I'll go thru life, just catchin' colds and missin' planes
    Everything happens to me

    I never miss a thing, I've had the measles and the mumps
    And every time I play an ace, my partner always trumps
    I guess I'm just a fool, who never looks before he jumps
    Everything happens to me

    At first my heart thought you could break this jinx for me
    That love would turn the trick to end despair
    But now I just can't fool this head that thinks for me
    I've mortgaged all my castles in the air

    I've telegraphed and phoned, sent an Air Mail Special, too
    Your answer was "Goodbye", and there was even postage due
    I fell in love just once and then it had to be with you
    Everything happens to me
    Everything happens to me

    (Another Version)

    I never found a rainbow, never saw a pot of gold
    I lost a dice in Vegas, every single time I rolled
    I've stamped my daydreams cancelled, and the winter's getting cold
    Everything happens to me

    I've known a lot of ladies, but there's something that I lacked
    Each time that there's a breakup, I'm the one who holds the sack
    And when I give my heart away, they always give it back
    Everything happens to me

    At first my heart thought you could break this jinx for me,
    that love would turn the trick to end the despair
    But now I can't just fool this head, that thinks for me
    I've mortgaged all my castles, in the air

    Now in the school of life, well I was lucky just to pass
    So I'm chasing rainbows, with the losers of the class
    But pall you can't find rainbows, in the bottom of a glass
    Everything happens to me

    Telegraphed and phoned,
    Sent an air mail special too
    Your answer was "goodbye",
    There was even postage due
    I fell in love just once,
    And then it had to be with you
    Everything happens to me
