SOMEBODY
Writer Sonny Bono

In our world of wonderland
One thing is plain to see
And it don't take no mystic mind at all
Lots of people they're looking now
And searching just like me
Trying to find the answer to it all

Someone told me long ago
Cher you just can't see
You miss the forest looking for the tree
When I think about it now
It's very true you see
Cause everything I want is next to me

Somebody, somebody
You got-ta, you got-ta have somebody
It ain't power, it ain't freedom
You got-ta, you got-ta have somebody
It ain't long hair, it ain't short hair
You got-ta, you got-ta have somebody

He might be black, he might be white
But you got-ta, you got-ta have somebody

Can you dig it, can you dig it
You got-ta, you got-ta have somebody

Somebody when you're happy
Somebody when you're happy
You got-ta, you got-ta have somebody
Somebody when you're lonesome
Somebody when you're lonesome
You got-ta, you got-ta have somebody
Somebody in a lifetime
Somebody in a lifetime
You got-ta, you got-ta have somebody
