I CAN LIVE WITHOUT IT

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


          I.  I went to buy
              a pocket radio.
              the man say,
              "how 'bout a stereo?
              we got AM, FM,
              stereo cassette,
              10-speed turntable
              8-track cartridge
              we got ev'rything,
              color TV screen!"

   CHORUS A:  I said, "thank you,
              I can live without it!
              I can live without it!
              I can live without it!"

         II.  I said to Jill,
              "let's make love alot!
              why lose the feelin'
              when the feelin' is a-hot?"
              she said,
              "I wanna church weddin',
              big reception,
              house and a station wagon,
              clothes,
              and a diamond ring--
              if you wanna have me!"

              (repeat chorus A)

        III.  I went to school
              to learn the bongo drum.
              the teacher say,
              "don't wantcha to be dumb:
              you're gonna learn
              how to play piano,
              orchestrations,
              and arrange the SATB,
              and sight-sing
              Bach chorales,
              Schubert lieder--
              if you wanna be a better
              bongo beater!"

   CHORUS B:  I said, "thank you! but
              I can live without it!
              I can live without it!
              I can live without it!
              I can live without it!
              I can live without it!
              I can live without it!"
