Nina Simone – I Get Along Without You Wery Well lyrics

(1952) hoagy carmichael

I get along without you very well
Of course, i do
Except when soft rains fall
And drip from leaves then i recall
The thrill of being sheltered
In your arms
Of course, i do
But i get along without you very well

I've forgotten you
Just like i said i would
Of course, i have
Or maybe except when i hear your name
Someone's laugh that's just the same
I've forgotten you just like
I should

What a guy
What a fool am i
To think my aching hearth
Could keep the moon
What's in store
Should i phone once more
No, no, no, no, no
It's best that i stick to my tune

I said that i get along
Without you very well
Of course, i do
Except perhaps in spring
But then i should never
Ever think of spring
For that would
Surely break my heart in two
