There'll Be Some Changes Made

Benny Goodman

They say don't change the old for the new,

But I've found out this will never do

When you grow old you don't last long

You're here today and then tomorrow you're gone,

I loved a man(gal) for many years gone by,

I tho't his(her) love for me would never die,

He(She) made some changes that would never do

From now on I'm goin' to make some changs too.


For there's a change in the weather

There's a change in the sea

So from now on there'll be a change in me

My walk will be diff'rent my talk and my name

Nothin' about me is goin' to be the same,

I'm goin' to change my way of livin' if that ain't enough,

Then I'll change the way that I strut my stuff,

'cause nobody wants you when you're old and gray

Ther'll be some change made.


They say the old time things are the best,

That may be very good for all the rest

But I'm goin' to let the old things be

'Cause they are certainly not suited for me,

There was a time when I thought that way,

That's why I'm all alone here today

Since ev'ry one of these days seeks something new

From now on I'm goin' to seek some new things too.


For there's a change in the fashions,

Ask the fiminine folks

Even Jack Benny has been changing jokes,

I must make some changes from old to the new

I must do things just the same as others do,

I'm goin' to change my long, tall Mamma(Daddy) for a ittle short Fat,

Goin' to change the number where I live at.

I must have some lovin' or I'll fade away,

There'll be some changes made.


Here are additional choruses that appear on the inside page in the sheet

music. Interesting.


There's a change in your manner

And a change in your way

There was time once when you was O.K.

You once said you save ev'ry kiss for my
