"Buds Won't Bud [From Cairo]" as written by Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg....
Buds won't bud, breeze won't breeze and dew won't dew,
One and one ain't even two
When the love you love won't love you.

Buds won't bud, chicks won't chick and micks won't mack,
Blue is white and white is black
When the love you love won't love back.

On account there's no accountin'
When you can't have the one you like,
All your troubles keep on mountin'
and the world is on a sit-down strike,
'Cause;

Buds won't bud, breeze won't breeze and dew won't dew,
One and one ain't even two
When the love you love won't love you.

Buds won't bud, breeze won't breeze and crows won't crow,
Eeny meeny's minus mo
When the love you love says, "Hi ho".

Buds won't bud, notes won't note and knots won't knot,
T's won't cross and I's won't dot
When the hope you hope goes to pot.

On account there's no accountin'
When you can't bring your dream about,
All your troubles keep on mountin'
And the world is just a big blackout,
'Cause;

Buds won't bud, breeze won't breeze and dew won't dew,
C-O-D is I-O-U
When the love you love won't love you.
