Everybody's lonesome for somebody else but nobody's lonesome for me
So everybody's thinkin' of somebody else but nobody's thinkin' 'bout me
When the time rolls around for me to lay down and die
I bet I'll have to go and hire me someone to cry
Everybody's lonesome for somebody else but nobody's lonesome for me.

Everybody's longin' for somebody else but nobody's lonesome for me
Everybody's dreamin' bout somebody else but nobody dreams about me
All I need is a bride who wants a big hearted groom
I wouldn't care if she came ridin' in on a broom
Everybody's lonesome for somebody else but nobody's lonesome for me.

--- Instrumental ---

Everybody's pinin' for somebody else but nobody's pinin' for me
Everybody's crazy bout somebody else but nobody's crazy bout me
Oh I shine up my shoes and then I slick down my hair
Put on my Sunday suit but I ain't goin' nowhere
Everybody's lonesome for somebody else but bobody's lonesome for me.

Everybody's yearnin' for somebody else but nobody's lonesome for me
Everybody's fallin' for somebody else but nobody's fallin' for me
Now I ain't had a kiss since I fell out of my crib
It looks to me like I've been cheated out of my rib
Everybody's lonesome for somebody else but nobody's lonesome for me
