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.
