Allein durch die Welt zu gehen ist nicht schön; dies macht der folgende Text deutlich:


I am feeling blue,

Lonely thro' and thro',

No one seems to notice me at all;

That's the reason why I can't help but sight,

Ev'ry evening, when the shadows fall.

Married folks I know

Say, "It's better so,"

That is all I get for sympathy;

Tho' they may be right,

Still, when comes the night,

I long for someone to care for me.



If someone would only care

A little bit for lonely me,

If someone would only dare,

How truly happy I would be;

It is hard to live alone,

Tho' that's the line of Fate I see,

And the world seem lots brighter

If someone only cared for me.


Guess I'm kind of slow,

Or I'd have a beau,

One to hold my hand and call me "Dear;"

Tho' so hard I try,

They all pass me by,

Couldn't ever make a hit, I fear.

Never knew the bliss

Of a sweetheart's kiss,

And I'm longing just one or two;

But my idle dreams

Are in vain, it seems

Anyway, they never done come true.
