But the self is not something one finds, it is something one creates.”

Gotta Be This or That

Words and Music by Sunny Skylar (11 Oct 1913 – 02 Feb 2009)

Recorded by
Benny Goodman (30 May 1909 – 13 June 1986), 1945

If you ain't wrong, you're right
If it ain't day, it's night
If you ain't sure, you might
Gotta be this or that

If it ain't dry, it's wet
If you ain''t got, you get
If it ain't gross, it's net
Gotta be this or that

If it ain't sis, you can't miss
It's got to be your brother
Can't you see it's gotta be
One way or the other

If it ain't full, it's blank
If you don't spend, you bank
If it ain't Bing, it's Frank
Gotta be this or that
