You're tired of me, that's plain to see I was just a mere sensation Now we're through, I'll get along somehow I wanted love, you promised love All you gave was conversation Though I'll miss you, I'll get along somehow All I have left is just a picture of you On which you wrote But never meant the words 'I Love You' I'm all alone, so all alone Needing words of consolation Friendless and blue, I'll get along somehow All I have left is just a picture of you On which you wrote But never, never meant the words 'I Love You' I'm all alone, so all alone Needing words of consolation Friendless and blue, I'll get along somehow ++++++++++ As recorded by LARRY DARNELL: You're tired of me, it's plain to see I was just mere sensation Now that we're through, I'll get along somehow, somehow I wanted love, you promised love All you gave was conversation Though I'll miss you, I'll get along somehow Darling, all I have left is just a picture of you On which you wrote But never, never, never meant the words 'I Love You' I'm all alone, so all alone I'm needing words of consolation Friendless and blue, but I'll get along somehow SPOKEN: You're right up on top now and you want to be free Why, you feel that you're too good, much too good for a nobody like me Yes, you're afraid to present me to your friends in your set Oh well, I guess it's more convenient for us to forget But how soon you forget all the fine, fine things you said And how just a little success, yes, just a little taste of success Has gone straight to your pretty little head I hold in my hand three letters, dear Each from three different stages of your fine, super fine career The first one began, "Larry, darling, sweetheart, my wonderful one I'll always be greatful for the things that you've done" Your second letter came right after I gave you your start Yes, it came from your pen, dear, but not from your heart The third, the third is a joker that came with the deck You ended your letter, "Enclosed, Larry, please find my check" Why, you fool, you poor, sad, worthless foolish fool Do you think your money could pay For the hard years I've suffered with you till things broke your way Yes, I smiled when you kissed me, I thrilled at your touch My only sin was I loved you, I loved you much too much I'm answering your last letter that said we must part But I'm tearing it to pieces, just like you tore up my heart I'm sad and I'm licked and I haven't got a dime But I thank God, yes, I thank my God, I found you out in time Darling, all I have left is just a picture of you On which you wrote But never, never, never meant the words 'I Love You' I'm all alone, so all alone I'm needing words of consolation Friendless and blue, but I'll get along somehow (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2011)
