I'm Old Fashioned

I'm Old Fashioned
music by Jerome Kern (near left)
lyric by Johnny Mercer (far left)

I am not such a clever one about the latest fads;
I admit I was never one adored by local lads;
Not that I ever try to be a saint, I'm the type that they classify as quaint.

I'm old fashioned, I love the moonlight, I love the old fashioned things.
The sound of rain upon a windo pane, the starry song that April sings.
This year's fancies are passing fancies, but sighing sighs, holding hands,
These my heart understands.
I'm old fashioned, but I don't mind it.
That's how I want to be as long as you agree to stay old fashioned with me.
