Where’s the Mate for Me?

Where’s the Mate for Me? song lyrics – by Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein, performed in Show Boat‘Till the Clouds Roll By

Who cares if my boat goes upstream,
Or if the gale bids me go with the river’s flow?
I drift along with my fancy
Sometimes I thank my lucky stars my hear is free.
And other times I wonder where’s the mate for me?

The driftwood floating over the sea
Someday finds a sheltering lea,
So, somewhere there surely must be
A harbor meant for me.

I drift along with my fancy,
Sometimes I thank my lucky stars my heart is free.
And other times I wonder where’s the mate for me?
