Eartha Kitt

Eartha Mae Kitt (January 17, 1927 – December 25, 2008) was an American singer, actress, and cabaret star. She was perhaps best known for her highly distinctive singing style and her 1953 hit recordings of "C'est Si Bon" and the enduring Christmas novelty smash "Santa Baby". Orson Welles once called her the "most exciting woman in the world." She took over the role of Catwoman for the third and final season of the 1960s Batman television series, replacing Julie Newmar, who was unavailable due to other commitments. She also voiced Yzma on Disney's The Emperor's New Groove. more »

Feeling the way I do, I'd like to say "I do!"
Heaving a heavenly sigh
Everybody has a someone
Why can't I?

Creeping to bed alone, resting my head alone
Only my pillow nearby
Some have a reason for dreaming
Why can't I?

I feel forsaken on nights like this
Can't I awaken to someone's kiss?

Only my book in bed knows how I look in bed
Nobody hears when I cry
Everybody has a someone
Why can't I?

Feeling the way I do I'd like to say, "I do!"
Nature is hard to deny
Everybody has a someone
Why can't I?

Feeling the way I do, I'd like to say "I do!"
Nature is hard to deny
Everybody has a someone
Why can't I?

If love brings merriment, I must experiment
With some electrical guy
Even old maids find a burglar
Why can't I?

Should girls be good girls?
I think they should
I need a good man to make me be good

Two feet are ever cold
Four feet are never cold
I only mean to imply:
Everybody has someone
Why can't I?

Everybody needs someone
Why can't I?
