Verse:
There's a say - ing go - ing round,  And I be - gin to think its true.
It's aw - ful hard to love some - one,  When they don't care 'bout you.
Once I had a lov - in' man,  As good as an - y in this town.
But now I'm sad and lone - ly,  For he's gone and turned me down.  Now ...
 
Chorus:
I ain't got no - bod - y,
And no - bod - y cares for me.
And I'm sad and lone - ly,
Won't some - bod - y come and take a chance with me?
I'll sing sweet love songs hon - ey, all the time.
If you'll come and be my sweet ba - by mine.
Cause,  I Aint Got no - bo - dy,
And no - bod - y cares for me.
