This Year of Grace the Musical - I Can't Think Lyrics
Music and lyrics by Noël Coward.
It was early in September
That we met each other first.
And my entrance, I remember.
Was distinctly unrehearsed.
1 had been to buy some butter
And some raspberries and some eggs.
When I slipped up in the gutter
And clasped him round the legs.
I can’t think why he looked at me so queerly,
I can’t think why he scowled and walked away,
I feel, as I apologised sincerely
He might have—well, perhaps I shouldn’t say.
I cflfn’t think how he managed to resist me,
Perhaps the wish was father to the thought,
I can’t think why he didn’t even kiss me.
But I do think he did nothing of the sort.
It was later in October
When we met—heigho!—once more,
I believe that I was sober,
But I couldn’t be quite sure.
It was early in the morning
And the air was pure and sweet.
When I staggered without warning
And fell prostrate at his feet.
I can’t think why my balance so betrayed me,
I can’t think why he hiccoughed and then frowned,
I feel as he had not the strength to raise me
He might have least have joined me on the ground.
I can’t think why his manners so depressed me.
Perhaps he was too social and refined.
If you think he attempted to molest me,
I do think he did nothing of the kind.
