Lyrics

VERSE 1
I’m sad and lonely,
There’s a good reason why
Nobody cares about me
That’s why I’m sad as can be
I long for some one
Somebody, yes indeed
Lovin’ kisses from one,
Is exactly what I need

CHORUS
Many’s the time I feel so lonesome
But nobody knows,
And nobody cares
I’ve grown so tired of being by my “own some”
I want somebody to hug,
Cuddle and snug as comfy as a bug in a rug,
Many’s the time I feel like spooning,
But nobody knows and nobody cares
I guess I’ll make out a little “ad”
That I want some lovin’ so bad
‘Cause nobody knows and nobody seems to care.

VERSE 2
I’d love a sweetie,
Hanging around the place
Someone to worry about
I’d never want to go out
My home is gloomy
Nobody’s there that’s why
I feel “bride and groomy”
Can’t you see it in my eye

CHORUS
