Wikipedia: What’s New?

What’s New?
How is the world treating you?
You haven’t changed a bit,
Handsome as ever, I must admit

What’s new?
How did that romance come through?
Of course you could know,
Gee, but it’s nice to see you again

What’s new?
Probably I’m boring you
But seeing you is grand
And you were sweet to offer your hand
I understand, adieu
Pardon my asking, what’s new
Of course you couldn’t know
I haven’t changed, I still love you so

Artie Shaw and his Orchestra
