This page is about the song that Howard performs for Bernadette in "The Vengeance Formulation" (S3E09). If you are looking for the song Howard writes and all the other six perform together for Bernadette in "The Romance Resonance" (S7E06), please see If I didn't have you.

Howard created a song for Bernadette[1] after making a fool of himself in front of her. This was originally made by The Four Tops entitled, "Bernadette" but Howard created his own personal life experience for her.

"Bernadette" is a 1967 hit song recorded by the Four Tops for the Motown label. Written and produced by Motown's main production team,Holland–Dozier–Holland, the song is one of the most well-known Motown tunes of the 1960s. Depicting a man's excessive desire for and jealousy over his girlfriend, the song reached #4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was The Four Tops' final Top 10 hit of the 1960s. In 1972, the song "Keeper of the Castle" would return them to the Top 10 charts. "Bernadette" was known for its false ending, when the chorus holds a long cadence note and then Levi Stubbs shouts out the title and goes on with his insecure passions as the song ends in a fade out.
