(duet with Jonathan Wilkes) Written by Dave Dreyer, Al Jolson and Billy Rose
[spoken] Robbie: (american accent) Johnny and Robbie Jonathon: What you talking like that for, you're from Stoke! Robbie: I dunno but I can't stop here pally
Like the wallpaper sticks to the wall Like the C sharp clings to the C Like you'll never get rid of your shadow You'll never get rid of me
Let all the others fight and fuss Whatever happens, we've got us.
[Me and my shadow] We're closer than pages that stick in a book We're closer than ripples that flow in a brook [Strolling down the avenue] Wherever you find him, you'll find me, just look Closer than a miser or the bloodhounds to Liza
Me and my shadow We're closer than smog to all of L.A. We're closer than Ricky to confessing he's gay?? Not a soul can bust this team in two We stick together like glue
And when it's sleeping time That's when we rise We start to swing Our clocks don't chime What a surprise They ring-a-ding-ding! Happy New Year!
[Me and my shadow] And now to repeat what I said at the start They'll need a large crowbar to break us apart We're alone but far from blue
Before we get finished, we'll make the town roar We'll hit a few late spots, and then a few more We'll wind up at Stringy's and maybe ? show Life is gonna be we-wow-whee! For my shadow and me!
[spoken] Jonathon: Can we do that again Robbie: No, I'm too tired Jonathon: Please Rob Robbie: No, I'm swung out Jonathon: I'll give you some money Robbie: I don't need money Jonathon: What about a cup of tea Robbie: Not thirsty Jonathon: I'll won't tell anyone you're gay. (Both Laugh)
Before we get finished, we'll make the town roar We'll hit all the late spots, and then a few more We'll wind up at Stringy's and maybe ? show Life is gonna be we-wow-whee! For my shadow and me!
