12-beat intro.  Play 3-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song is in 3/4 waltz time.
Gone is the romance that was so divine,
'Tis broken and cannot be mended.
You must go your way and I must go mine,
But now that our love dreams have ended.
What'll I Do when you are far away,
And I am blue, What'll I Do?
What'll I Do when I am wond'ring who,
Is kissing you, What'll I Do?
What'll I Do with just a photograph,
To tell my troubles to.
When I'm alone with only dreams of you,
That won't come true, What'll I Do?
