  • Ah ha, hmm, gonna get along without you now
    Ah ha, hmm, I'm gonna get along without you now

    You told me I was the neatest thing
    You even ask me to wear your ring
    You ran around with every girl in town
    You didn't even care if it got me down

    Ah ha, hmm, gonna get along without you now
    Ah ha, hmm, I'm gonna get along without you now
    I got along without you before I met you
    Gonna get along without you now
    Thought I'd find somebody who is twice as cute
    'Cause I didn't like you anyhow

    You told everybody that we were friends
    But this is where our friendship ends
    'Cause all of a sudden you change your tune
    And haven't been around since way last June

    Ah ha, ooh, ooh, gonna get along without you now
    I got along without you before I met you
    Gonna get along without you now
    So long my honey, goodbye my dear

    Gonna get along without you now, ooh, hoo
    Get along without you no,wooh, hoo
    Get along without you now
    Get along without you now

    Ah ha, ah ha, gonna get along without you now
    I got along without you before I met you
    Gonna get along without you now
    So long (Get along without you now) my honey
    (Get along without you now)
    Goodbye (Get along without you now) my dear
    (Get along without you now)
    Gonna get along without you now

    So long (Get along without you now) my honey
    (Get along without you now)
    Goodbye (Get along without you now) my dear
    (Get along without you now)
    Gonna get along without you now

    So long (Get along without you now) my honey
    (Get along without you now)
    Goodbye (Get along without you now) my dear
    (Get along without you now)
    Goodbye Writer/s: MILTON KELLEM
