"If I Can't Have You" as written by and Richard Rodgers Lorenz Hart....
Don't know why I'm surviving ev'ry lonely day
When there's got to be no chance for me
My life would end
And it doesn't matter how I cry
My tears of love a waste of time
If I turn away

Can't let go and it doesn't matter how I try
I gave it all so easily to you my love
To dreams that never will come true
Am I strong enough to see it through
Go crazy is what I will do

Am I strong enough to see it through?
Go crazy is what I will do
If I can't have you, I don't want no other, baby
If I can't have you, uh huh, ah!
If I can't have you, I don't want no other, baby
If I can't have you, uh huh, ah!

And it doesn't matter how I try
I gave it all too easily to you, my love
To dream and never will come true

Am I strong enough to see it through?
Go crazy is what I will do
If I can't have you, I don't want no other, baby
If I can't have you, uh huh, ah!
If I can't have you, I don't want no other, baby
If I can't have you, uh huh, ah!

(If I can't have you)

    General CommentTo me this song is about love that turns to obsession and then to anger. One of Labelle's best vocal throwdowns--one that would make girl groups of today run for cover.
