Verse is in the key of Em, Chorus is in G.
When this world began, It was Heaven's plan,
There should be a girl for ev'ry single man.
To my great regret, Someone has upset,
Heaven's pretty program for we've never met.
I'm clutching at straws, Just because I may meet him/her yet.
Somebody loves me, I wonder who,
I wonder who he/she can be.
Somebody loves me, I wish I knew,
Who can he/she be worries me.
For ev'ry boy/girl who passes me I shout, "Hey! Maybe!
You were meant to be my loving baby."
Somebody loves me, I wonder who,
Maybe it's you.
Arranged by Jim Bottorff
