“Of course I do”

Nina Simone, her voice and her piano:

I get along without you very well
Of course I do

Except when soft rains fall
and drip from leaves, then I recall
the thrill of being sheltered in your arms
Of course I do

But I get along without you very well
I’ve forgotten you just like I said I would
Of course I have

Or maybe except when I hear your name
Someone’s laugh that’s just the same
I’ve forgotten you just like I should

What a guy
What a fool am I
To think my aching heart could kid the moon

What’s in store
Should I phone once more
No — it’s the best that I stick to my tune

I said that I get along without you very well
Of course I do

Except perhaps in spring
But then I should never ever think of spring
For that would surely break my heart in two
