About Nobody

"Nobody" is a song written by Kye Fleming and Dennis Morgan, and recorded by American country music artist Sylvia. It was released in June 1982 as the second single from the album Just Sylvia. The song was first recorded in 1982 by Sylvia, who was already a country music star, achieving a #1 hit and 2 other top tens in 1981. "Nobody" was her second and final Billboard #1 country hit. The song was so successful, it crossed over to the Billboard Hot 100 charts, debuting on August 21, 1982 (the week the song dropped from #1 Country) and peaking at #15 in November. "Nobody" spent 20 weeks on the chart; earned a gold record; and was also a top five Adult Contemporary hit. The song turned young Sylvia into a star on both sides of the charts. Although she gained country-pop success with "Nobody", she never achieved another crossover hit, or for that matter, another #1 hit. She would, however, go on to score 6 additional top 10 hits (11 total) on the country chart. The song became Sylvia's signature song and got nominated for a Grammy award in 1983 for Best Female Country Vocal Performance. It also helped her take home the Academy of Country Music (ACM) award for Top Female Vocalist of 1982, a category for which she was never even nominated by the Country Music Association (CMA). The title also received the BMI Song of the Year (1983) award for receiving the most radio airplay.

Sittin' in a restaurant she walked by
I seem to recall that certain look in your eye
I said "who's that?" You said with a smile
"Oh it's nobody, oh nobody"

Maybe that explains the last two week
You called me up, dead on your feet
Working late again, I ask who with
You said "nobody, oh nobody."

Well your nobody called today
She hung up when I asked her name
Well I wonder does she think she's being clever?
(Clever)
You say nobody's after you
The fact is what you say is true
But I can love you like nobody can, even better

Late last night we went for a drive
You were miles away I asked "who's on your mind?"
You said, "Nobody, nobody. Why do you ask?"
Oh, her again I could have told you that.

We came back home got ready for bed
I said to myself I've got one shot left
Your still mine and I won't stand in line
Behind nobody, nobody!

Well your nobody called today
She hung up when I asked her name
Well I wonder does she think she's being clever?
(Clever)
You say nobody's after you
The fact is what you say is true
But I can love you like nobody can, even better.

Well your nobody called today
She hung up when I asked her name
Well I wonder does she think she's being clever?
(Clever)
You say nobody's after you
The fact is what you say is true
But I can love you like nobody can, even better.

Well your nobody called today
She hung up when I asked her name
Well I wonder does she think she's being clever?
