Without You. Harry Nilsson. Produced by Richard Perry. Album Nilsson Schmilsson. No, I can't forget this evening Or your face as you were leaving But I guess that's just the way the story goes You always smile but in your eyes your sorrow shows Yes, it shows. No, I can't forget tomorrow When I think of all my sorrow When I had you there but then I let you go And now it's only fair that I should let you know What you should know
Gotta get up Gotta get out Gotta get home before the morning comes What if I'm late Got a big day Gotta get home before the sun comes up. Up and away Got a big day Sorry can't stay I gotta run run yeah. Gotta get home Pick up the phone I gotta let the people know I'm gonna be late. There was a time when we could dance Until the quarter to ten We never thought it would end then We never thought it would end. We used to carry on and drink And do the rock and roll We never thought we'd get older We never thought it'd grow cold But now. Gotta get up Gotta get out Gotta get home before the morning comes What if I'm late Got a big day. Gotta Get Up" lyrics provided for educational purposes and personal use only.

With its bawdy, music hall feel, "Gotta Get Up" would not have been out of place on Joe Cocker's Mad Dogs & Englishmen repertoire. A song about the dread of aging and facing responsibility, Nilsson illustrates waking up from the remnants of a wild party and having to get on with reality - grudgingly. It's a charming opener to the Nilsson Schmilsson album, and it's about a subject that Nilsson was all too familiar with.
