Judy Garland — Buds Won't Bud lyrics

Buds Won't Bud,
Breeze won't breeze and dew won't dew,
One and one ain't even two,
When the love you love won't love you.
Buds Won't Bud,
Chicks won't chick and knicks won't knack,
Blue is white and white is black,
When the love you love won't love back.
On account there's no accountin',
When you can't have the one you like,
All your troubles keep on mountin',
And the world is on a sit-down strike.
'Cause
Buds Won't Bud,
Breeze won't breeze and dew won't dew,
One and one ain't even two,
When the love you love won't love you.
Buds Won't Bud,
Breeze won't breeze and crow won't crow,
Eenie-meanie's minus moe,
When the one you love says "Heigh-ho!"
Buds won't Bud
Notes won't note and knots won't knot,
T's won't cross and I's won't dot
When the hope you hope goes to pot.
On account there's no accountin',
When you can't bring your dream about,
All your troubles keep on mountin',
And the world is just a big black-out.
'Cause
Buds Won't Bud,
Breeze won't breeze and dew won't dew,
Cod is iou,
When the love you love won't love you.
