Listen to my tale of woe
It's terribly sad, but true
All dressed up, no place to go
Each evening I'm awfully blue

I must win some handsome guy
Can't go on like this
I could blossom out I know
With somebody just like you, so

Oh, sweet and lovely lady, be good
Oh, lady, be good to me
I am so awfully misunderstood
So, lady, be good to me

Oh, please, have some pity
I'm all alone in this big city
I tell you I'm just a lonesome babe in the wood
So, lady, be good to me

Oh, please, have some pity
I'm all alone in this big city
I tell you I'm just a lonesome babe in the wood
So, lady, be good to me
Oh, lady, be good to me
