Verse:
Lis -ten to my tale of woe, It's ter -ri -bly sad, but true.
All dressed up no place to go, Each ev -'ning I'm awf -'ly blue.
I must win some win -some miss; Can't go on like this.
I could blos -som out I know, With some -bod -y just like you, so,
 
Chorus:
Oh, sweet and love -ly la -dy, be good!
Oh la -dy, be good! to me!
I am so awf' -ly mis -un -der -stood,
So la -dy be good to me.
Oh, please have some pit -y
I'm all a -lone in this big cit -y I tell you
I'm just a lone -some babe in the wood
So la -dy, be good to me!
