Mel Tormé - I'm Nothing Without You (You're Nothing Without Me)



[Verse 1: Cleo Laine]
You're a great artist
And a grand singer
When I'm with you
I feel like a band singer
There are a few cats who
Sing in tune like you
I don't know even one who can croon like you

[Pre-Chorus 1: Cleo Laine]
You make it look so easy
Like falling off a log
So effortless and breezy
You're velvet and I'm merely fog

[Chorus 1: Cleo Laine]
I'm nothing without you
Without you I lack what it takes
Unless we're combined, I'm flyin' off line
And constantly making mistakes
Without you, I'm nowhere
A no one no one will recall
I'm nothing without you
Without you I'm nothing at all

[Verse 2: Mel Torme]
You're a great partner
I'm so keen on you
Pull the freight, partner
I'm here to lean on you
I love your music
Each note has rhythm
You are pure music
High style and jazz rhythm
[Pre-Chorus 2: Mel Torme]
How can you top that worth
They always know the score
How much is City Bank worth
A Dankworth is worth even more

[Chorus 2: Mel Torme]
I'm nothing without you
Without you I just disappear
Right into thin air
And no one would care
Or notice I ever was here
Without you, I'm hopeless
I'm not even good for a song
I'm nothing without you
Without you I'd surely go wrong

[Chorus 3: Both, Cleo Laine, Mel Torme]
I'm nothing without you
Without you I lack what it takes
Unless we're combined
I have half a mind
To blow all my chances and breaks
I'm nowhere without you
To doubt you would always be wrong
You've done every tune that I wanted to do
We've settled the issue, I wish I were new
But now we're together
Together is where we belong
