They All Look Alike  (1916) 
by Jerome Kern (music) and P. G. Wodehouse (lyrics)
Song from the musical Have a Heart.
Sheet music cover

[Verse]

In days gone by, I used to be
Inclined for men's society,
I would flirt and I would dance
Ev'ry time that I got the chance.
Athletic Jim taught me to swim,
Jack drove me in his car,
I'd stroll with Ned and golf with Fred,
What dear, good boys they are!
But now although, with one accord,
They try to please me, I'm just bored.

[Refrain]

For they all lok alike to me now
Yes, they all, look alike to me now.
I used to feel as fond of them as I could be,
But ev'rything is changed somehow.
I meet an old acquaintance,
But no longer get a thrill,
I say, How are you Clarence?"
And he tells me he is Bill;
If I see a man on Sunday
I've forgotten him by Monday,
For they all look alike to me now.
