"Why Was I Born?" as written by Jerome Kern and Oscar Ii Hammerstein....
Why was I born
Why am I livin'
What do I get
What am I givin'
Why do I want for things
I dare not hope for
What can I hope for
I wish I knew
Why do I try
To draw you near me
Why do I cry
You never hear me
I'm a poor fool
But what can I do
Oh baby why was I born
To love you
