Nobody Knows (and Nobody Seems to Care)  (1919) 
by Irving Berlin
Cover page to the sheet music.

[1st verse:]

I'm sad and lonely

There's a good reason why

Nobody cares about me

That's why I'm sad as can be

I long for someone

Somebody, yes indeed

Lovin' kisses from one

Is exactly what I need


[Refrain:]

Many's the time I feel so lonesome

But nobody knows

And nobody cares

I've grown so tired of being by my "own-some"

I want somebody to hug

Cuddle and snug as comfy as a bug in a rug

Many's the time I feel like spooning

But nobody knows

And nobody cares

I guess I'll make out a little "ad"

That I want some lovin' so bad

'Cause nobody knows

And nobody seems to care


[2nd verse:]

I'd love a sweetie

Hanging around the place

Someone to worry about

I'd never want to go out

My home is gloomy

Nobody's there that's why
