Billie Holiday – Why Was I Born? lyrics
Oscar Hammerstein II / Jerome Kern


Why was i born?
Why am i livin'
What do i get?
What am i givin'
Why do i want things,
I dare not hope for.
What can i hope for?
I wish i knew
Why do i try?
To draw you near me
I'm a poor fool
But what can i do
Oh baby i was born
To love you!
I Don't think that there are many corrections 2 your song. My friend read it
And is giving it 2 her boyfriend!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great Song!!!!!!!
Your knew fans
