This song is in the key of G.
Listen to my tale of woe, It's terribly sad, but true.
All dressed up no place to go, Each ev'ning I'm awf'ly blue.
I must win some winsome miss; Can't go on like this.
I could blossom out I know, With somebody just like you, so..
Oh, sweet and lovely lady, be good!
Oh lady, be good! to me!
I am so awf'ly misunderstood,
So lady be good to me.
Oh, please have some pity,
I'm all alone in this big city, I tell you,
I'm just a lonesome, babe in the wood,
So lady, be good to me!
