"I Get Along Without You Very Well" 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 CommentOh Lord, I can't believe that nobody commented on this song!!! It's one of my ALL TIME favorites!!! Renato Russo's version is the best. To me, this is about losing love, and trying to seem/feel strong, "Oh, I'm doing just fine without you, no problem!" but then he confesses "yeah, I'm fine, just not in the Spring - because something reminds me of you - or when it rains, or when I hear your name, or..." and then he's forced to face it: he's not getting along well at all!
