When I'm not playing solitaire I take a book down from the shelf And what with programs on the air I keep pretty much to myself Missed the Saturday dance Heard they crowded the floor Couldn't bear it without you Don't get around much anymore Thought I'd visit the club Got as far as the door They'd have asked me about you Don't get around much anymore Darling, I guess my mind's more at ease But nevertheless, why stir up memories Been invited on dates Might have gone but what for Awfully different without you Don't get around much anymore TRIVIA: Duke Ellington first recorded this tune in 1940 under the title "Never No Lament". Bob Russell's lyrics and the new title were added in 1942.
