8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
This song is often played as a medley with "Just A Gigolo".
There's a saying going round,  And I begin to think its true.
It's awful hard to love someone,  When they don't care 'bout you.
Once I had a lovin' man,  As good as any in this town.
But now I'm sad and lonely,  For he's gone and turned me down.  Now ...
I ain't got nobody,
And nobody cares for me.
And I'm sad and lonely,
Won't somebody come and take a chance with me?
I'll sing sweet love songs honey, all the time.
If you'll come and be my sweet baby mine.
Cause,  I Aint Got nobody,
And nobody cares for me.
