i get along without you very well lyrics – carly simon

(hoagy carmichael)

i get along without you very well
of course i do
except when the soft rains fall
and drip from the 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 should
of course i have
except to hear your name
or someone’s laugh that is just the same
but i’ve forgotten you just like i should

what a guy
what a fool i am
to think my breaking heart could kid the moon
what’s in store
should i fall 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
