I Get Along Without You Very Well

Writer(s): 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 should, 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 guy, what a fool am I,
To think my breaking 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.
