lyrics to Me And My Shadow - (With Sammy Davis Jr.) / Frank Sinatra

Frank Sinatra and Sam Houston
Me and My Shadow

[this song has been entered under frank sinatra as well although it was sung by the two of them]
Like the wallpaper sticks to the wall
Like the seashore clings to the sea
Like you'll never get rid of your shadow
Frank, you'll never get rid of me
Let all the others fight and fuss
Whatever happens, we've got us.
Me and my shadow
We're closer than pages that stick in a book
We're closer than ripples that play in a brook
Strolling down the avenue
Wherever you find him, you'll find me, just look
Closer than a miser or the bloodhounds to Liza
Me and my shadow
We're closer than smog when it clings to L.A.
We're closer than Bobby is to J.F.K.
Not a soul can bust this team in two
We stick together like glue
And when it's sleeping time
That's when we rise
We start to swing
Swing to the skies
Our clocks don't chime
What a surprise
They ring-a-ding-ding!
Happy New Year!
Me and my shadow
And now to repeat what I said at the start
They'll need a large crowbar to break us apart
We're alone but far from blue
Before we get finished, we'll make the town roar
We'll make all the late spots, and then a few more
We'll wind up at Jilly's right after Toot's Shore
Life is gonna be we-wow-whee!
(here comes the party!)
For my shadow and me!
Say Frank?
What is it, Sam?
Do me a favor?
What do you want, now?
Would you mind taking it, just one more time?
From the top?
No! From the ending!
Wonderful!
And while we are swinging, to mention a few
We'll drop in at Danny's, The Little Club too
But wind up at Jilly's, whatever we do
Life is gonna be we-wow-w

(D. Dreyer, A. Jolson, B. Rose)
[Recorded October 22, 1962, Los Angeles]
Like the wallpaper sticks to the wall
Like the seashore clings to the sea
Like you'll never get rid of your shadow
Frank, you'll never get rid of me
Let all the others fight and fuss
Whatever happens, we've got us.
Me and my shadow
We're closer than pages that stick in a book
We're closer than ripples that play in a brook
Strolling down the avenue
Wherever you find him, you'll find me, just look
Closer than a miser or the bloodhounds to Liza
Me and my shadow
We're closer than smog when it clings to L.A.
We're closer than Bobby is to J.F.K.
Not a soul can bust this team in two
We stick together like glue
And when it's sleeping time
That's when we rise
We start to swing
Swing to the skies
Our clocks don't chime
What a surprise
They ring-a-ding-ding!
Happy New Year!

Like the wallpaper sticks to the wall
Like the seashore clings to the sea
Like youll never get rid of your shadow
Frank, youll never get rid of me
Let all the others fight and fuss
Whatever happens, weve got us.
Me and my shadow
Were closer than pages that stick in a book
Were closer than ripples that play in a brook
Strolling down the avenue
Wherever you find him, youll find me, just look
Closer than a miser or the bloodhounds ? ? ? ? ?
Me and my shadow
Were closer than smog when it clings to l.a.
Were closer than bobby is to j.f.k.
Not a soul can bust this team in two
We stick together like glue
And when its sleeping time
Thats when we rise
We start to swing
Swing to the skies
Our clocks dont chime
What a surprise
They ring-a-ding-ding!
Happy new year!
Me and my shadow
And now to repeat what I said at the start
Theyll need a large crowbar to break us apart
Were alone but far from blue
Before we get finished, well make the town roar
Well make all the late spots, and then a few more
Well wind up at jillys right after toots shore
Life is gonna be we-wow-whee!
(here comes the party!)
For my shadow and me!
Say frank?
What is it, sam?
Do me a favor?
What do you want, now?
Would you mind taking it, just one more time?
From the top?
No! from the ending!
Wonderful!
And while we are swinging, to mention a few
Well drop in at dannys, the little club too
But wind up at jillys, whatever we do
Life is gonna be we-wow-whee!
(wow!)
For my shadow and me!
Frank?
Oh, forget it sam.

SONG MEANING / BACKGROUND INFO
What does Me And My Shadow - (With Sammy Davis Jr.) mean?

... update background information ...

Provided courtesty of songfacts.com:
-During childbirth Sinatra nearly died. He weighed more than 13 pounds and his skin was blue because he was unable to breathe on his own after the doctor severed the umbilical cord prematurely. The delivery caused his mother to pass out from the pain and stress of the procedure, and Frank was initially believed to have suffocated during birth. It was his grandmother, a midwife, who submerged the newborn Sinatra in a tub of ice water to force his lungs to contract and gasp for his first breath. He suffered multiple injuries, including a perforated eardrum and lacerations to his face and neck as a result of the delivery room doctor's use of forceps during the procedure. The injuries he suffered at birth later prevented him from serving in WWII. He was rejected with a 4F classification due to his perforated ear, mastoiditis, and an anxious demeanor.
