​Nobody Knows (And Nobody Seems to Care)

This song is by Brook Benton and appears on the album Born to Sing the Blues (1964).

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

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 I feel "bride and groomy"
Can't you see it in my eye

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 the 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
