I Get Along Without You Very Well (Except Sometimes)
Lyrics ,Music:Hoagy Carmichael
The song was publishe 1939.
"I Get Along Without You Very Well" is a popular song composed by Hoagy Carmichael in 1939, with lyrics based on a poem written by Jane Brown Thompson. Thompson's identity as the author of the poem was for many years unknown; she died the night before the song was introduced on radio by Dick Powell.
The biggest-selling version was a 1939 recording by Red Norvo and his orchestra (vocal by Terry Allen).
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
