"Let's Call the Whole Thing Off" as written by Ira Gershwin and George Gershwin....
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 whole thing 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 sarsaparilla, and I sarsaparilla
Vanilla, vanilla, chocolate, strawberry
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 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

I say father, and you say pater
I saw mother and you say mater
Pater, mater, uncle, auntie
Let's call the whole thing off

I like bananas and you like bananas
I say Havana and I get Havana
Bananas, bananas, Havana, Havana
Go your way, I'll go mine

So if I go for scallops and you go for lobsters,
So all right, no contest, we'll order lobster
For we know we need each other
So we better call the calling off, off
Let's call the whole thing off
