This is a mean old world, baby to live in all by yourself
Yes it's a mean old world, baby to live in all by
Yourself
Yes, you can't get the woman you love and you have to put
Up with somebody else

Baby, I smile to keep from worryin' and I laugh just to
Keep from cryin'
Oh I smile to keep from worryin', baby and I laugh just
To keep from cryin'
Well, that's to keep the public for knowin' what I got on
My mind

Yes, someday baby, when the blood runs cold in my vein
Yes, someday baby, when the blood runs cold in my vein
Well, I hope You'll around by here to mistreat me baby,
'Cause my heart it feel no pain
