lyrics

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
Except to hear your name
Or someone’s laugh that is the same
but I’ve forgotten you just like I should

What a gal
What a fool am I
To think my aching heart could kid the moon
What’s in store
Should I phone once more?
No, it’s best that I stick to my tune

I get along without you very well
Of course I do
Except perhaps in spring
But I should never think of spring
For that would surely break my heart in two
