Without You Lyrics

Without You - Alan Jay Lerner

What a fool I was

What dominated fool

 

To think that you were the Earth and sky

 

What a fool I was

What an elevated fool

What a mutton-headed dote was I

 

No my reverberating friend

 

You are not a beginning and the end

 

There will be spring

Every year without you

 

England still will be here without you

 

There will be fruit on the tree

And a shore by the sea

There will be crumpets

And tea without you

 

Art and music will thrive without you

 

Somehow Keats will survive without you

 

And there still will be rain on

That plain down in Spain

Even that will remain without you

 

I can do without you

 

You dear friend who taught so well

 

You can go to Hartford

Hereford and Hampshire

 

They can still rule the land without you

 

Windsor Castle will stand without you

 

And without much ado we can

All muddle through without you

 

Without your pulling it the tide comes in

 

Without your twirling it

The Earth can spin

 

Without your pushing them

The clouds roll by

 

If they can do without you

Ducky so can I

I will not feel alone without you

 

I can stand on my own without you

 

So go back in your shell

 

I can do bloody well without you
