I'm nobody's baby, I wonder why
Each night and day I pray the Lord up above
Please send me down somebody to love
But nobody wants me, I'm blue somehow
Won't someone hear my plea and take a chance with me
Because I'm nobody's baby now
No, nobody's baby
And I've got to know the reason why
Last week I was walking down the street and met a boy and I said
"Hey, maybe I was meant for you"
But he only tipped his hat and shook his head
Kept on walkin' down the avenue
Oh, nobody wants me, I'm mighty blue somehow
Won't someone hear my plea and take a little chance with me?
Because I'm no-nobody's baby, I'm blue somehow
Won't someone hear my plea and take a chance with me?
There's no denyin' I'm cryin'
I'm lonesome on my own-some
I don't mean maybe, I'm nobody's baby!
