Original video
When you were lonely, you needed a man
Someone to lean on, well I understand
It's only natural
But why did it have to be me?

Nights can be empty, nights can be cold
So you were looking for someone to hold
That's only natural
But why did it have to be me?

I was so lonesome, I was blue
I couldn't help it, it had to be you and I
Always thought you knew the reason why

I only wanted a little love affair
Now I can see you are beginning to care
But baby, believe me
It's better to forget me

Men are toys in the game that you play
When you get tired, you throw them away
That's only natural
But why did it have to be me?

Falling in love with a woman like you
Happens so quickly, there's nothing to do
It's only natural
But why did it have to be me?

I was so lonesome, I was blue
I couldn't help it, it had to be you and I
Always thought you knew the reason why

I only wanted a little love affair
Now I can see you are beginning to care
But baby, believe me
It's better to forget me
