I’m Old Fashioned

1942 by Jerome Kern
Lyrics by Johnny Mercer

I’m old fashioned
I love the moonlight
I love the old fashioned things
The sound of rain
Upon a window pane
The starry song that April sings
This year’s fancies
Are passing fancies
But sighing sighs holding hands
These my heart understands
I know I’m old fashioned
But I don’t mind it
That’s how I want to be
As long as you agree
To stay old fashioned with me
