Oh, the moon lights so bright makes me lonely tonight
Everything seems to make me feel blue here
I'm down hearted now I'm lonesome somehow
'Cause you are proving untrue

Why should I be so lonely, why should I be so sad?
Though another is taking from me the best pal that I've ever had
She's taking the sunshine with her, leaving the clouds for me
But why should I be so lonesome when there's nobody lonesome for me?

Oh, the violets so blue are calling for you
The roses so sweet make me lonely
They bring to my mind a sweet happy time
When your love was only for me

Why should I be so lonely, why should I be sad?
Though another is taking from me the best pal that I've ever had
She's taking the sunshine with her, leaving the clouds for me
But why should I be so lonesome when there's nobody lonesome for me?
