Let's Call the Whole Thing Off -- Billie Holiday (1937)







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 potahtoes
You like tomatoes
And I like tomahtoes
Potatoes, potahtoes, tomatoes, tomahtoes
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 pajahmas and I like pajamas
I'll wear pajahmas 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 erysters
I'll order oysters and cancel the erysters
For we know we need each other
So we'd better call the calling off, off
Let's call the whole thing off
