This is a mean old world to live in all by yourself
This is a mean old world to live in all by yourself
This is a mean world to be alone
Without someone to call your own
This is a mean old world to try and live in all by yourself

I wish I had someone, someone who’d love me true
I wish I had someone, who loved me true
If I had someone who loved me true
Then I know I wouldn’t be so blue
This is a mean old world to try and live in all by yourself

Lord, this is a mean old world to live in all by yourself
Mean old world to try and live in all by yourself
This is a mean world to be alone
Without someone to call your own
Lord, mean world to try and live in all by yourself

Sometimes I find myself dreaming I found a love
Sometimes I find myself dreaming I found a love
Sometimes I dream I really found a love
Someone who loved me true as the stars above
For this is a mean old world to try and live in all by yourself
