"Only the Lonely" as written by and Martha Davis....
(Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah, ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-ah-ah, only the lonely, only the lonely)

Only the lonely (Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah)
Know the way I feel tonight (Ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah)
Only the lonely (Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah)
Know this feeling ain't right (Dum-dum-dummy doo-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-dummy doo-wah, ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, ooh-ah-ah, only the lonely, only the lonely)

Only the lonely (Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah)
Know the heartaches I've been through (Ooh yay, yay, yay, yeah)
Only the lonely (Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah)
Know I cry and cry for you (Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah)

Maybe tomorrow a new romance
No-o-o more sorrow, but that's the chance
You've got to take, if your lonely heart breaks
Only the lonely (Dum-dum-dummy doo-wah)
