Is't It A Pity? lyrics

Its a funny thing.
I look at you.
I get a thrill
I never knew.
Isnt it a pity
We never met before?

Here we are at last.
Its like a dream.
The two of us
A perfect team.
Isnt it a pity
We never met before?

Imagine all the lonely years weve wasted.
Me with the neighbors.
You at silly labors.
What joys untasted.
My nights were sour,
Spent with schopenhauer

Lets forget the past.
Lets both agree
That Im for you
And youre for me.
And its such a pity
We never, never met before.

Imagine all the years weve wasted.
Fishing for salmon
Losing at backgammon.
What joys untasted.
Me at the prado,
You in colorado.

Happiest of girls Im sure to be
If only you would say to me
That its such a pity
We never met before.
What an awful pity
We never, never met before.
