About If I Can't Have You

"If I Can't Have You" is a disco song written by Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb in 1977. The song initially appeared on the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack in a version by Yvonne Elliman, released in November 1977. The Bee Gees' version appeared a month later as the B-side of "Stayin' Alive". The song later appeared on the Bee Gees' compilation Their Greatest Hits: The Record. The remixed version was released and remastered in the compilation Bee Gees Greatest in 2007 and marked the return of the Bee Gees to the US Hot Dance Tracks charts after 28 years. According to Maurice, this track was the first song they did while they were recording the other songs for the film. The recording was started at Château d'Hérouville as a basic track only and completed later at Cherokee Studios in Los Angeles.

Don't know why 
I'm survivin' every lonely day
When there's got to be no chance for me
My life would end
And it doesn't matter how I cry
My tears, so far, are a waste of time
If I turn away
Am I strong enough to see it through
Go crazy is what I will do

[Chorus]
If I can't have you
I don't want nobody, baby
If I can't have you uh-huh, oh
If I can't have you
I don't want nobody, baby
If I can't have you uh-hoh

Oh da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
Oooh, oooh
Aahhhh! Aahhhh!

Can't let go and it doesn't matter how I try
I gave it all so easily to you my love
To dreams that never will come true
Am I strong enough to see it through
Go crazy is what I will do

If I can't have you
I don't want nobody, baby
If I can't have you uh-huh, oh
If I can't have you
I don't want nobody, baby
If I can't have you uh-hoh

Oh!

Aahhhh! Aahhhh!

Oh!

If I can't have you
I don't want nobody, baby
If I can't have you uh-huh, oh
If I can't have you
I don't want nobody, baby
If I can't have you uh-hoh

If I can't have you
I don't want nobody, baby
If I can't have you uh-huh, oh
If I can't have you
I don't want nobody, baby
If I can't have you uh-hoh
