This is a mean old world to live in all by yourself
This is a mean old world to live in all by yourself
This is a mean world to be alone without someone to call your own
This is a mean old world to try and live in all by yourself

I wish I had someone, someone who'd love me true
I wish I had someone, someone who loved me true
If I had someone who loved me true then I know I wouldn't be so blue
This is a mean old world to try and live in all by yourself

No, this is a mean old world to live in all by, by, by, by all by yourself
Mean old world to try and live in all by, by, by, by, by, by, by, by yourself
This is a mean world to be alone without someone to call your own
No, mean world to try and live in all by, by, by, by, by yourself

Sometimes I find myself dreamin' I found a love
Sometimes I find myself dreamin' I found a love
Sometimes I dream I've really found a love
Someone who loved me true as the stars above
For this is a mean old world to try and live in, all by yourself
