It is a nice song, Gio. And as a Detroiter, I'm proud of htis kind of music - even though it became popular after I moved out of Detroit in 1958 at the age of nine.

Just as I think I'm understanding the lyrics, they blow those darn horns. Can't say I have much appreciation for how they mixed this recording.

Honey I can't see myself doing without you.
[inaudible]

I hope I never see the day
You take your sweet love away
And give it to somebody else.
The hardest thing in the world to do
Would be to start my life anew.
You see, I love you more than I love myself.

If I was offered the whole wide world
And I couldn't have you for my girl,
[inaudible - those damn trumpets].....the sound
If I couldn't have you around
I'd take that cat and turn it down (? - damn trumpets again)
You know I think I have to turn it down.

'Cause I can't see myself (3 x) doing without you.

I need you desperately,
Your loving come for me (?????)
When this world is just too much to bear.]
'Cause one kiss from your sweet lips.
Is all it takes to do the trick,
You make my troubles (slip??) right into space.

Now, when you shower your love on me,
It (rains down??) ecstasy.
Like a job that you learn things???)
I'm like a bird without his wings,
To me your love means everything.
You know, to me your love means everything.

'Cause I can't see myself (3 x) doing without you.
I need your sweet love (several times)

Well, Gio, that's what I get out of it. You know, I learned to transcribe songs [and I learned German] by transcribing recordings of German. You might want to try the same with these songs. If you post what you hear when you post a request, it might make us more likely to try to help you out.

All the best to you.

-Joe-

Gio and Joe- I hear some parts differently. The last verse is still hard to understand.

Honey I can't see myself doing without you.
I can't do without your love

I hope I never see the day
You take your sweet love away
And give it to somebody else.
The hardest thing in the world to do
Would be to start my life anew.
You see, I love you more than I love myself.

If I was offered the whole wide world
And I couldn't have you for my girl,
Listen Baby now, as good as the offer sounds:
If I couldn't have you around
I think I'd have to turn it down
You know, I think I'd have to turn it down.

'Cause I can't see myself (3 x) doing without you, Baby.
(I can't do without your love)

I need you desperately,
To loving come for me
When this world is just too much to face
'Cause one kiss from your sweet lips.
Is all it takes to do the trick,
You make my troubles drift right into space.

Now, when you shower your love on me,
It (rains down??) ecstasy.
Listen Baby, (like a job ??) that your loving brings
I'm like a bird without his wings,
To me your love means everything.
You know, to me your love means everything.

'Cause I can't see myself (3 x) doing without you.
I just can't do without your love (several times)
