"Why Can't I?" as written by and Lorenz/rodgers Hart....
Feeling the way I do,
I'd like to say, "I do!"
Heaving a heavenly sigh
Everybody has 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?

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

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

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