"I Get Along Very Well Without You (Except Sometimes)" as written by and Hoagy Carmichael....
I get along without you very well
Of course, I do
Except when soft rains fall
And drips 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 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

    General Comment'To think my aching heart could keep the moon'. Beautiful, uninterpreted meaning.

    My OpinionCorrections: Nina's aching "heart" can't "kid the moon" (or in the Chet Baker version, "kid the blues").
