Lyrics

Yeah, yeah
If I didn't have you

If I didn't have you to hold me tight (If I didn't have you)
If I didn't have you to lie with at night (When I'm feeling blue)
If I didn't have you to share my sighs (Share my sighs)
And to kiss me and dry my tears when I cry, well I
Really think that I would
Have somebody else

If I didn't have you (If I didn't have you)
Someone else would do

Your love is one in a million (One in a million)
You couldn't buy it at any price (Can't buy love)
But of the 9 point 9 9 9 hundred thousand other possible loves
Statistically some of them would be equally nice (Equally nice)
Or maybe not as nice but say, smarter than you
Or, or dumber but better at sport or
Tracing, I'm just saying
(Really think that I would) Probably
(Have somebody else)

(If I didn't have you) If I didn't have you, someone else would do
(Someone else would surely do)

If I were a rich man
Fiddle diddle diddle diddle diddle diddle diddly
I guess I would be with a surgeon or a model
Or any of the royals or a kennedy
Or a nymphomonical exhibitionist heiress to a large chain of hotels
If I were a rich man maybe I would fiddle
Fiddle diddle diddle with the rich man girls

I'm not saying that I'd not love you if I was wealthy or handsome
But realistically, there's lots of fish in the sea
And if I had a different rod I would conceivably land some
Even though I am fiscally consistently pitiable
And considerably less Brad Pitt than Brad pitiful
Am I really so poor and ugly that you reckon only you could possibly love me, and I
(Really think that I would)
Probably (Have somebody else)

(If I didn't have you) If I didn't have you, someone else would do
(Someone else would surely do)

Look, I'm not undervaluing what we've got when I say
That given the role chaos inevitably plays in the inherently flawed notion of fate
It's obstruse to deduce that I've found my soulmate at the age of 17
It's just mathematically unlikely that at a university in Perth
I happened to stumble on the one girl on earth specifically designed for me
And if I may conjecture a further objection
Love is nothing to do with destined perfection
The connection is strengthened
The affection simply grows over time
Like a flower or a mushroom
Or a guinea pig or a vine
Or a sponge or bigotry
Or a banana
Love is made more powerful by the ongoing drama of shared experience and the synergy
And symbiotic empathy or something

So I trust it goes without saying
That I would feel really very sad
If tomorrow you were to fall off something high
Or catch something bad
But I'm just saying
I don't think you're special
I mean I think you're special
But, you fall within a bell curve
I mean, I'm just saying I

(Really think that I would) Probably
(Have somebody else)

I think you are unique and beautiful
You make me happy just by being around
But objectively you would have to agree that baby when I found you
Options were relatively thin on the ground (Thin on the ground)
You're lovely but there must be girls as lovely as you
Or maybe more open to spanking or
Table tennis, I'm just—

(Really think that I would) Probably
(Have somebody else)

I mean I reckon it's pretty likely that if for example
My first girlfriend Jackie hadn't dumped me
After I kissed Winston's ex girlfriend Neah at Stephs party back in 1993
Enough variables would probably have been altered by the absence of that event
To have meant the advent of a tangential narrative in which we don't meet
Which is to say there exists a theoretical
Hypothetical parallel life
Where what is is not as it is
And I am not your husband and you are not my wife

And I am a stuntman living in LA
Married to a small blonde Portuguese skier
Who when she's not training
Does abstract painting
Practises yoga
And brews her own beer
And really likes making home movies
And suffers neck down alopecia

But with all my heart and all my mind I know one thing is true
I have just one life and just one love and my love that love is you
And if it wasn't for you
Darlin' you

(Really think that I would) Probably
(Have somebody else)

(If I didn't have you) If I didn't have you
Someone else would do (Someone else would surely do)
