She Ain’t Got Nobody

She ain’t got nobody

People’s only passing by

She just wants somebody

To be there when she dies


Nobody sees her sorrow

Nobody wants to notice at all

And besides it isn’t easy to see

She even dresses so fine when she’s on her own


I can feel it from a distance

Don’t even need a telephone

To feel her tears come drizzling

Into her heart crying all alone


Her eyes get wet for a second

But she keeps talking about something else

Changing the subject so swiftly

You almost forget that you came to help


But help is not what she needs

No no no it’s not help she wants

Denying to keep from crying

Denying she is longing for love
