What'll I Do Lyrics - Irving Berlin

Review The Song (29)

Gone is the romance that was so divine.
'Tis broken and cannot be mended.
You must go your way,
And I must go mine.
But now that our love dreams have ended...

What'll I do
When you are far away
And I am blue
What'll I do?

What'll I do?
When I am wond'ring who
Is kissing you
What'll I do?

What'll I do with just a photograph
To tell my troubles to?

When I'm alone
With only dreams of you
That won't come true
What'll I do?

<instrumental-one verse>

What'll I do with just a photograph
To tell my troubles to?

When I'm alone
With only dreams of you
That won't come true
What'll I do?

Last song with my mom | Reviewer: Barbara | 11/27/13

One month before our mom passed away we gave her a pre-Christmas tea party. We had a tape of old songs play and this song came on. Mom started singing and we video taped her. Now that she is gone, I find the song so beautiful and especially meaningful.

What'll I Do | Reviewer: B. Kight | 4/26/12

My husband passed away in March. He took care of me and everything else. I didn't realize how much he did do. I'm so terribly lost without him. I do talk to his photograps I have throughout the house all the while wishing I could carress his face.

First heard this on Golden Girls also | Reviewer: Audrey | 12/20/11

This is a beautiful, haunting song that tugs at the heart for anyone suffering a loss. My mother died earlier this year and my dear kitty cat died a few weeks ago and I'm missing them both so much this Christmas. Hearing this song makes them feel a little closer to my heart.

GREAT SONG | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/15/11

This song gets me every time.... | Reviewer: Frank Giann | 4/7/10

I'm a 40 year old tough guy biker and this song makes me cry every single time. Guess I'm not as tough as I thought...lol. I first heard this song on the Golden Girls way back in the late 80's and I could never get it out of my memory...

WHAT'LL I DO | Reviewer: margie NYS | 8/21/09

I used to sing this song to my Mom after my Dad died in 1998. It was me telling her to hang on, hold up for me. She passed away 5/21/09. Now I sing the words to her picture. She so loved the Robert Redford movie, THE GREAT GATSBY, and watching him and Mia Farrow dance to this rendition.
She always wanted to dance in a ruffled gown, with a man in a tux. I believe she and my Dad are dancing among the stars now. AMEN!

Discovered | Reviewer: Marilyn | 2/10/09

I discovered this song by watching the last episode of Cheers featuring Shelly Long. She and Ted Danson dance to this as an old couple as the scene fades out. I never get through watching it without tearing up.

Brava to Bravogirl05 | Reviewer: Mary | 10/24/08

This is the perfect song. I have listened to it sung by many famous artists--Judy Garland forgot the second line of the chorus and made up her own (a little lame), Johnny Mathis wrang every drop of pathos he could get out of the song, and Frank was backed by a full orchestra. The most perfect singer of this song, I think, is one I found on the internet: She has the appellation Bravogirl05, her name is Kristi, and she has the pure, sweet, clear voice that fits this wonderful song so perfectly. It was backed by only a simple keyboard rendition. I would give anything for her recording of "What'll I Do".

What'll I Do | Reviewer: Linda | 8/24/08

I can't believe I've found the words to this beautiful, haunting old song that my grandmother use to sing to me in the l940s. I've loved it forever and have always wished I knew all the lyrics. I recently got a computer and thought to look for it. I had a good cry, but I thank you for restoring a lovely memory from my childhood.

My favorite | Reviewer: Anna | 8/2/08

Out of all the old, wonderful songs that I perform, this has to be my favorite. I end my last set with 'What'll I Do' and it chokes me up every time. With the simple, yet meaningful lyrics and the beautiful, haunting melody . . .
And I have to give Linda Ronstadt credit for introducing me to so many classics with her collaborations with Nelson Riddle when I was in my late teens. 'What'll I Do' was one of them.

Bea Arthur sings what'll i do at the rusty anchor bar | Reviewer: teresa | 6/21/08
