Russian term or phrase: Все не то, все не так.
The first strophe of Tsyganova's Гроздья рябины,

Я сегодня одна,
Не трезва, не пьяна,
За окном суета,
На душе маята.
Эх, сосед – старина
Может, выпьем вина,
Старый добрый чудак,
Все не то, все не так.

I don't quite get the sense of Все не то, все не так. Can anyone please help me? TIA.
