A little bit like you (click hear for uke version)

The sign on the diner says, “open”
But the short order cook says he’s through
There’s a dish he just can’t handle
Sounds a little bit like you

It sure was a night to remember
I just read the morning reviews
“A masterpiece in the making!”
Sounds a little bit like you

Now people may say
Life has its own way,
So sit back and enjoy the view
but from what I can see
—If you’ll pardon me—
I’m pretty sure a little bit won’t do

You know the night has a way of suggesting
The things that we know we should do
A star just kissed the moon
It sounds a little bit like you



Remember that thing about April
Well, TS Eliot wrote it in June
They call it poetic license
But it sounds a little bit like you

Somewhere there's a record still playing
It's like Ella on a Cole Porter tune
It’s as sweet as it is clever,
Sounds a little bit like you.

You know the candlestick maker
And the butcher and baker
They’ve been telling me what I should do
They say "Believe it or not,
you've got to accept your lot,"
But I'm pretty sure they'd like a little bit too

They say Eden was one hell of a garden,
each morning was sprinkled with dew
Still who could really blame them,
it sounds a little bit like you
I say, who can really blame them
it sounds a little bit like you
