I’m Old-Fashioned

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
Im the type that they classify as quaint

Im old fashioned
I love the moonlight
I love the old fashioned things

The sound of rain
Upon a window pane
The starry song that april sings

This years fancies
Are passing fancies
But sighing sighs holding hands
These my heart understands

I know Im 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

(bridge)

Im 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

Oh wont you stay old fashioned with me
Oh please stay old fashioned with me.

-Jerome Kern
