Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off

Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off – Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong

 

Things have come to a pretty pass. Our romance is growing flat.
For you like this and the other while I go for this and that.
Goodness knows what the end will be. Oh I don’t know where I’m at.
It looks as if we two will never be one. Something must be done.

You say either and I say either. You say neither and I say neither.
Either, either, neither, neither… let’s call the whole thing off.

You like potato and I like potato. You like tomato and I like tomato.
Potato, potato, tomato, tomato… let’s call the whole thing off.

But oh, if we call the whole thing off, then we must part.
And oh, if we ever part, then that might break my heart.

So if you like pajamas and I like pajamas, I’ll wear pajamas and give up pajamas.
For we know we need each other so we better call the calling off off.
Let’s call the whole thing off.

You say laughter and I say laughter. You say after and I say after.
Laughter, laughter, after, after…let’s call the whole thing off.

You like vanilla and I like vanilla. You saspirilla and I saspirilla.
Vanilla, vanilla, chocolate, strawberry… let’s call the whole thing off.

But oh, if we call the whole thing of then we must part.
And oh, if we ever part, then that might break my heart.

So if you go for oysters and I go for oysters, I’ll order oysters and cancel the oysters.
For we know we need each other so we better call the calling off off.

Let’s call the whole thing off.


You say either and you say either. You say neither and you say neither.
Either, either, neither, neither… let’s call the whole thing off.

You like potato and you like potato. You like tomato and you like tomato.
Potato, potato, tomato, tomato… let’s call the whole thing off.

 

But oh, if we call the whole thing of then we must part.
And oh, if we ever part, then that might break my heart.

 

So if you like pajamas … I like pajamas. I’ll wear pajamas. You got pajamas.

For we know we need each other so we better call the calling off off.

Let’s call the whole thing off.

Let’s call the whole thing off.
