It's Funny To Everyone But Me


Original Version

It's funny how you loved me
Then forgot so suddenly
It's funny to everyone but me

They told me this would happen
Now they're laughing secretly
It's funny to everyone but me

I should shrug my shoulders and say
Good riddance to a bad affair
But how can I do what my head tells me to
When my heart tells me how much I care

It's so funny I still love you
It's the joke of the century
It's funny to everyone but me

Spoken:
How could I have made such a fool mistake
They're laughin' at me all over town
Honey child, did you ever notice the delight that they all take
In kickin' a man that's down?

Now, I should shrug my shoulders and say
Well, good riddance to a bad affair
But, darlin', how can I do what my head tells me to
When my heart tells me how much I care?
Umm-umm-umm

Ah, but it's funny I still love you
It's the joke of the century
It's so funny to everyone but me

It's funny, but not to me

jack lawrenceJack Lawrence was born Jacob Louis Schwartz in Brooklyn, New York to an Orthodox Jewish family of modest means as the third of four sons. His parents Barney (Beryl) Schwartz and Fanny (Fruma) Goldman Schwartz were first cousins who had run away from their home in Belaya Tserkov (Bila Tserkva, Ukraine) to come to America in 1904.
Lawrence wrote songs while still a child, but because of parental pressure after he graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School, he enrolled in the First Institute of Podiatry where he received a doctoral degree in 1932. The same year, his first song was published and he immediately decided to make a career of songwriting rather than podiatry. That song, "Play, Fiddle, Play", won international fame and he became a member of ASCAP that year at age 20.

It's Funny to Everyone but Me is a song with words and music written by Jack Lawrence in 1939. It was recorded by The Ink Spots on May 17, 1939. It was also recorded by Frank Sinatra with Harry James & his Orchestra on August 17, 1939. It was one of the songs of Sinatra's developing repertoire.
