"Mr. Lonely" as written by Aliaune Thiam, Gene Allen and Bobby Vinton....
Lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
I have nobody for my own
Now I am so lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
Wish I had someone to call on the phone

Now I'm a soldier, a lonely soldier
Away from home through no wish of my own
That's why I'm lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
I wish that I could go back home

Letters, never a letter
I get no letters in the mail
I've been forgotten, yes, forgotten
Oh, how I wonder, how is it I failed

Now I'm a soldier, a lonely soldier
Away from home through no wish of my own
That's why I'm lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
I wish that I could go back home

    General CommentThis song makes me so sad when I hear it. I remember listening to my mom's old tapes on our occassional family road trips and tearing everytime I heard it.

    General CommentI absolutely love this song, and it makes me cry when I hear it. Just the emotion in his voice, you can tell that he is so sad. The lyrics are just full of sadness. He wants to go back home from the war, and he never gets letters from anyone, and he thinks he's been forgotten, but he still wants to go back home. Because home is where the heart is.
