As recorded by: AILEEN STANLEY: I used to be my Mother's baby When I was near, my Dad went wild Whenever we had company They'd bounce me on their knee The neighbours thought I was a darling child Once I was everybody's baby But right now I'm lonesome as can be You see I'm nobody's baby, I wonder why Each night and day I pray the Lord up above Please send me down somebody to love But nobody wants me, I'm blue somehow Won't someone hear my plea And take a little chance with me Because I'm nobody's baby now Now that my baby days are over I long for things that I had then I miss the cuddles and joys I miss my dog and toys Oh, how I wish I were a kid again I guess there's lots of grown-up babies Feel like me and need some sympathy Because I'm nobody's baby, I wonder why Each night and day I pray the Lord up above Please send me down somebody to love But nobody wants me, I'm blue somehow The way I feel today, I'd like to pass away Because I'm nobody's baby now But no-no-no-nobody wants me, I'm blue somehow I feel afraid that I'll be left an old maid 'Cause I'm nobody's baby now ******************** As recorded by RUTH ETTING, 1st March 1927: I used to be my Mother's baby When I was near, my Dad went wild Whenever we had company They'd bounce me on their knee The neighbours thought I was a darling child Once I was everybody's baby But right now I'm lonesome as can be You see I'm nobody's baby, I wonder why Each night and day I pray the Lord up above To please send me down somebody to love 'Cause nobody wants me, I'm blue somehow Won't someone hear my plea Come take a little chance with me Because I'm nobody's baby now (Piano & Violin Solos) I'm no-no, no-no-nobody's baby I, I just wonder why Each night and day, night and day I pray, I pray the Lord up above To please, please send me down Some sweet somebody to love Because no-no, no-no-nobody wants me I'm, I'm blue somehow Won't someone hear my plea, Come take a little chance with me Because I'm no-no, no-no-no-nobody's baby now ******************** As performed by JUDY GARLAND in the 1940 film "Andy Hardy Meets Debutante": I woke up this morning and the Sun was shining But I didn't see it Think I drank my orange juice, but I don't know I wouldn't guarantee it Wore my yellow dress, or was it blue Oh, what's the use, I don't remember Is it Monday, is it Tuesday, is it June Or is it still December Sat beside my window, watched the couples strolling by Felt so sorry for myself, I couldn't even cry Finally I pulled the shade, I couldn't stand the gaff So I sat down and wrote my epitaph I'm nobody's baby, I wonder why Each night and day I pray the Lord up above Please send me down somebody to love But nobody wants me, I'm blue somehow Won't someone hear my plea and take a chance with me Because I'm nobody's baby now, believe me No, nobody's baby And I've got to know the reason why Last week I was walkin' down the street and met a boy And I said, "Hey, maybe I was meant for you" But he only tipped his hat and shook his head Kept on walkin' down the avenue Oooh, nobody wants me, I'm mighty blue somehow Won't someone hear my plea and take a little chance with me Because I'm no, nobody's baby, I'm blue somehow Won't someone hear my plea and take a chance with me There's no denyin' I'm cryin' I'm lonesome on my own-some I don't mean maybe, I'm nobody's baby!
