I Wanna Be Around
- Artist: Tony Bennett as sung on "Tony Bennett's Greatest Hits, Vol. III"
Columbia CL 2313
- peak Billboard position # 14 in 1963
- Words and Music by Sadie Vimmerstedt and Johnny Mercer


I wanna be around to pick up the pieces
When somebody breaks your heart
Some somebody twice as smart as I
A somebody who will swear to be true
As you used to do with me
Who'll leave you to learn
That mis'ry loves company, wait and see
I mean, I wanna be around to see how he does it
When he breaks your heart to bits
Let's see if the puzzle fits so fine
And that's when I'll discover that revenge is sweet
As I sit there applaudin' from a front-row seat
When somebody breaks your heart
Like you, like you broke mine
