"Don't Leave Me" as written by and Harry Edward Nilsson....
The willow weeps
And having wept
Can weep no more
But still it cries for me
It cries in sympathy
It knows that you are gone
Don't leave me baby!

There was a time
When you were mine
An' not so long ago
I used to say
You'd never go away
You'd never leave me lonely
Don't leave me baby!

Think about the happy times
The groovy times
Don't tell me they are gone
I just can't carry on an'
And know that you're not here
You're not near
Anymore

Don't leave me baby
Things are gonna work out fine
Don't leave me baby
Think I'm goin' outta my mind
Don't leave me baby
Don't leave me behind!

(Beep, beep, beep, beep, yeah!
Beep, beep, beep, beep, yeah! )
(Beep, beep, beep, beep, yeah!
Beep, beep, beep, beep, yeah! )

The willow weeps
And having wept
Can weep no more
But still it cries for me
It cries in sympathy
It knows that you are gone

It cries for me,
(Beep, beep, beep, beep, yeah!
Beep, beep, beep, beep, yeah!)
The willow weeps!

    General Commentharry's scatting kills me every time...when his voices circle themselves and soar in unexpected directions. not many people could drop the "beep beep yeah" line from "drive my car" by the beatles into a ballad and actually make it sound like it meant something, but harry did just that. the guy was brilliant.
