Verse:
Gee, but I'm lone -some, lone -some and blue,
I've found out some -thing I ne -ver knew,
I know now what it means to be sad,
For I've lost the best gal I ev -er had.
She on -ly left yes -ter day,
Some -bod -y stole her a -way.
 
Chorus:
Some -bod -y stole my gal,
Some -bod -y stole my pal,
Some -bod -y came and took her a -way,
She did -n't e -ven say she was leav -in'.
The kiss -es I loved so,
He's get -ting now I know,
And Gee! I know that she,
Would come to me, If she could see,
Her bro -ken heart -ed lone -some pal,
Some -bod -y stole my gal.
