"Let's Call the Whole Thing Off" as written by Ira Gershwin and George Gershwin....
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 potatoes
And I like potatoes
You like tomatoes
And I like tomatoes
Potatoes, potatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes
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 it you like pajarnas and I like pajamas
I'll wear pajamas and give up pajamas
For we know we need each other
So we'd better call the calling off, off
Let's call the whole thing off

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'd better call the calling off, off
Let's call the whole thing off

    General Commentshe is a bit desperate, she is saying she'll change herself in order to keep her man or to keep from seperating. the different pronounciations are just ways of showing that she is not like her man or doesn't have anything in common with him. how willing can she get?

    General CommentMore important they are looking at all the reasons why they should not be together, all the while using it as fuel to profess why they never will.
