This song is in key of C.
When I'm not playing solitaire,  I take a book down from the shelf,
And what with programs on the air,  I keep pretty much to my self.
Missed the Saturday dance,  Heard they crowded the floor,
Couldn't bear it without you,  Don't Get Around Much Anymore.
Thought I'd visit the club,  Got as far as the door,
They'd have asked me about you,  Don't Get Around Much Anymore.
Darling I guess,  My mind's more at ease.
But nevertheless,  Why stir up memories.
Been invited on dates,  Might have gone but what for,
Awf'lly diff'rent without you,  Don't Get Around Much Anymore.
