Learned Another Song: "ONLY THE LONELY"

Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

I just learned another song, ONLY THE LONELY, by Roy Orbison.

Here's the lyrics:



Dum dum dum doody doo wah
Oh oh wo oh yeah yeah
Oh oh wo oh wah hah
Only the lonely.

VERSE # 1:

Only the lonely
Know the way I feel tonight.
Only the lonely
Know this feeling ain't right.
There goes my baby.
There goes my heart.
They're gone forever,
So far apart.

But, only the lonely
Know the reason why
I cry.
Only the lonely

VERSE # 2:

Only the lonely
Know the heartaches I've been through.
Only the lonely
Know I've cried and cried for you.
Maybe tomorrow,
A new romance.
No more sorrow,
But, that's the chance
You've gotta take
If your lonely heart breaks.
Only the lonely.

Like all the songs in my repertoire, I memorize and perform it "by ear", accompanying myself by strumming simple chords on a classical guitar.

I wish I could have learned all these things when I was still young and good looking.

But, now I'm old, gray, fat, and balding, increasingly reclusive, living month to month in the Old Soldiers' Home on a small disability pension, and rarely leave my room.

That ain't no way to attract females!

Thank you.
