Verse:
When I'm not play - ing sol - i - taire,  I take a book down from the shelf,
And what with pro - grams on the air,  I keep pret - ty much to my self.
 
Chorus:
Missed the Sat - ur - day dance,  Heard they crowd - ed the floor,
Could - n't bear it with - out you,  Don't Get A - round Much An - y - more.
Thought I'd vis - it the club,  Got as far as the door,
They'd have asked me a - bout you,  Don't Get A - round Much An - y - more.
Dar - ling I guess,  My mind's more at ease.
But nev - er- the - less,  Why stir up mem - o - ries.
Been in - vit - ed on dates,  Might have gone but what for,
Aw - f'lly diff - 'rent with - out you,  Don't Get A - round Much An - y - more.
