Track Title: Where's The Mate For Me?
Prime Artist: Tony Martin
Lyrics by: Oscar Hammerstein II (O. Greeley Clendenning H. II)
Music by: Jerome Kern (J. David K.)
From the Show: Show Boat 1927 (S)
From the Film: Show Boat 1951 (M)
Who cares if my boat goes up stream,
Or if the gale bids me go with the river's flow?
I drift along with my fancy~
Sometimes I thank my lucky stars my heart is free,
And other times I wonder where's the mate for me?
The driftwood floating over the sea
Some day finds a sheltering lea,
So, somewhere there surely must be
A harbour meant for me.
I drift along with my fancy,
Sometimes I thank my lucky stars my heart is free.
And other times I wonder where's the mate for me.
