Mel Tormé - Live Alone And Like It (Stereo)



Live alone and like it
Free as the birds in the trees
High above the briers

Live alone and like it
Doing whatever you please
When your heart desires
Free to hang around or
Fly at any old time

No equivocation
Most of all no guarantees
That can be your motto
Free of obligation
Only the murmuring breeze
As an obligation
Live alone and like it
Why is that such a crime?

Free to call the tune
Free to say if you're
Gonna work or play
You can have the moon
But you don't have to have
It night and day
Anyway
On your own with only
You to concern yourself
Doesn't mean you're lonely
Just that you're free
Live and alone and like it
Don't come down from that tree

That's the answer for me
That's the answer for me
