Have You Met Miss Jones?

1937 – Richard Rodgers / Lorenz Hart

“Have you met Miss Jones?” someone said as we shook hands,
She was just Miss Jones to me.
And then I said, “Miss Jones, you’re a girl who understands
I’m a man who must be free.”
And all at once I lost my breath, and all at once was scared to death,
And all at once I owned the earth and sky.
And now I’ve met Miss Jones, and we’ll keep on meeting till we die,
Miss Jones and I.
