What Did I Have That I Don't Have
by Eydie Gorme



What did I have that I don't have?
What did he like that I lost track of?
What did I do that I don't do the way I did before?

What isn't there that once was there?
What have I got a great big lack of?
Something in me that he could see
that beckons to him no more?

Oh I'm just a victim of time,
obsolete in my prime,
out of date and out-classed
by my past.

What did he love that there's none of?
What did I lose the sweet warm knack of?
Wouldn't I be the late great me if I knew how?
Oh what did I have I don't have now?

What did he like that I'm not like?
What was the charm that I've run dry of?
What would I give if my old know-how still knew how?

Oh what did I have I don't have?
What did he see that's gone now?
What did I have I don't have now?
