The gang backing up Howard's song about Bernadette

"If I Didn't Have You (Bernadette's Song)" is a song that appears in "The Romance Resonance" (S07E06). Howard writes it for Bernadette for the anniversary of their first date. He invites the other five to perform the song with him at the restaurant, but because Bernadette gets quarantined due to careless mistake when handling raccoon virus, they perform this song outside Bernadette's isolation ward.

This song is on iTunes under the title: If I Didn't Have You (Bernadette's Song) [From "The Big Bang Theory"] [MusiCares® Version].

In reality, this song is composed by the musical comedy duo Garfunkel and Oates, consisting of Kate Micucci (who played Raj's ex-girlfriend Lucy in several episodes of Season 6 and once in Season 7) and Riki Lindhome (who played Ramona Nowitzki in "The Cooper-Nowitzki Theorem", S02E06). In an interview[1], Micucci confirmed that the only line that she and Lindhome were asked to include was the one referring to the fact that Howard would probably still live with his mom. They both performed a version of the song for the Big Bang panel at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con.

Lyrics

Howard

If I didn’t have you, life would be blue,
I’d be Doctor Who without the Tardis,
I'd be a candle without a wick,
A Watson without a Crick,
I’d be one of my outfits without Dick-ie
I’d be cheese without the mac,
Jobs without the Wozniak.
I’d be solving exponential equations
That use bases not found on your calculator,
Making it much harder to crack.
I’d be an atom without a bomb,
A dot without the com,
And I’d probably still live with my Mom.

Friends

And he’d probably still live with his mom.

Howard

Ever since I met you,
You turned my world around.
You supported all my dreams and all my hopes.
You’re like Uranium 235 and I’m Uranium 238,
Almost inseparable isotopes.
I couldn’t have imagined
How good my life would get,
From the moment that I met you, Bernadette.
If I didn’t have you, life would be dreary.
I’d be string theory without any string.
I’d be binary code without a one,Cathode ray tube without an electron gun.
I’d be “Firefly”, “Buffy” and “Avengers” without Joss Whedon.
I’d speak a lot more Klingon:
qalopmeH QaQ jajvam.[2]

Friends

And he’d definitely still live with his mom.

Howard

Ever since I met you,
You turned my world around.
You’re my best friend and my lover.
We’re like changing electric and magnetic fields:
You can’t have one without the other.
I couldn’t have imagined
How good my life would get,
From the moment that I met you, Bernadette.

Howard and Friends

Oh, we couldn’t have imagined
How good our lives would get,
From the moment that we met you, Bernadette.
