Listen to my tale of woe,
All dressed up, no place to go

Can't go on like this,
With somebody just like you. so...
Oh, sweet and lovely lady, be good
I am so awf'ly misunderstood

I'm all alone in this big city
I tell you I'm just a lonesome babe in the wood,

I'm all alone in this big city
I tell you I'm just a lonesome babe in the wood,

Published lyric furnished by a visitor.
Published version:
Listen to my tale of woe, it's terribly sad but true,
Each evening I'm awfully blue.

I could blossom out I know,

Lady be good,
I am so awfully misunderstood,
Oh, please have some pity
I tell you I'm just a lonesome babe in the wood,

I love 'em all, tall or small
They stagger but never fall.
Love! where is thy sting?
I'm going to end it all.

Oh lady, be good to me!
So, lady be good to me.
So let's put two and two together.
I'm just a lonesome babe in the wood,
