My soul in agony.”

"What'll I Do" is the name of a song written by Irving Berlin in 1923. It was introduced by singers Grace Moore and John Steel[1] late in the run of Berlin's third Music Box Revue and also was included in the following year's (1924) edition.[2] In the lyrics, the singer questions how he or she will get by now that a recent romance has ended.

The song was used as a generalized theme in Nelson Riddle's Academy award-winning period score for the 1974 film The Great Gatsby starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow, sung by character actor William Atherton. It was sung by Mary Steenburgen in the 1991 movie, The Butcher's Wife, and was used as the theme tune to the 1990s British sitcom Birds of a Feather. An instrumental version of the song was used under the closing scene of "I Do, Adieu" (1987), the fifth season finale of the sitcom Cheers.

From - 11/29/12:
A schoolteacher's son brought his report card home. The father said, "Let's see what you have accomplished."

He opened the report and to his dismay saw all bad grades.

"What do you have to say about this, Johnny?"

"Well, Dad, at least you know I'm not cheating."

What'll I Do?

Words and Music by Irving Berlin (May 11, 1888 – September 22, 1989), 1923

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?

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?
