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
