I Guess I'll Have To Change My Plan


Original Version

I guess, I'll have to change my plan
I should have realized there'd be another man
I overlooked that point completely
Until the big affair began

Before I knew where I was at
I found myself upon the shelf and that was that
I tried to reach the moon but when I got there
All that I could get was the air

My feet are back upon the ground
I've lost the one girl, I'd found

Before I knew where I was at
I found myself upon the shelf and that was that
I tried to reach the moon but when I got there
All that I could get was the air

My feet are back upon the ground
I've lost the one girl, the one girl I had found

The music of I Guess I'll Have To Change My Plan was written by Arthur Schwartz; the lyrics by Howard Dietz. The song was published in 1929. The song was introduced by Clifton Webb in the 1929 revue The Little Show and sung by Fred Astaire and Jack Buchanan in the 1953 musical film, "The Band Wagon." It was also sung by Marsha Mason and Kristy McNichol in the 1981 Neil Simon comedy-drama film Only When I Laugh (which was the motion picture version of Simon's Broadway play The Gingerbread Lady). It was also used as incidental music in the film "The Big Sleep" and has become a pop standard, recorded by many artists.
