|First line of chorus: All by myself in the morning, all by myself in the night|
VERSE 01: I’m so unhappy/What’ll I do,/I long for somebody who, will sympathize with me/I’m growing so tired of living alone,/I lie awake all night and cry/Nobody loves me that’s why.
CHORUS: All by myself in the morning/All by myself in the night/I sit alone in a cosy Morris chair,/So unhappy there/Playing solitaire/All by myself/I get lonely/Watching the clock on the shelf/I’d love to rest my weary head on somebody’s shoulder/I hate to grow older/All by myself.
VERSE 02: My name and number are in the book,/The one that hangs on a hook,/In almost ev’ry drug store/Why don’t someone bother to look,/My central tells me all day long/”Sorry the number is wrong.”
