(Dum, dum, dum, dum do, wah, ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, ooh, ah, only the lonely)
(Only the lonely)

Only the lonely (dum, dum, dum, dum do, wah)
Know the way I feel tonight (ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah)
Only the lonely (dum, dum, dum, dum do, wah)
Know this feeling ain't right (dum, dum, dum, dum do, wah)

There goes my baby
There goes my heart
They're gone forever
So far apart

But only the lonely
Know why I cry
Only the lonely (dum, dum, dum, dum do, wah, ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, ooh, ah, only the lonely)
(Only the lonely)

Only the lonely (dum, dum, dum, dum do, wah)
Know the heartaches I've been through (ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah)
Only the lonely (dum, dum, dum, dum do, wah)
Know I cry and cry for you (dum, dum, dum, dum do, wah)

Maybe tomorrow
A new romance
No more sorrow
But that's the chance
You've got to take
If your lonely heart breaks
Only the lonely (dum, dum, dum, dum do, wah)
