LONELY WOMAN (Benny Carter / Ray Sonin 1947) as recorded by June Christy with Stan Kenton (piano) 1955 also recorded by - June Christy with Stan Kenton & his Orchestra '47 Lil Green & her Orchestra '47 Sarah Vaughan '56 Helen Merrill '68 Chris Connor Lonely woman, lonely woman, Craving love and slaving to forget. A life of torture this is, To yearn for someone's kisses With lips you've wasted, untasted yet. Lonely woman, lonely woman Understands the pain I've clearly shown. What trick can fate have done me That men must spurn and shun me? My only crime is I'm alone! As I cross the street, the men I meet Have eyes of fun for everyone but me! In my room I pass the looking glass And see the bloom of girl who'd waiting, Killed by all my heart's complaining! Lonely woman, lonely woman, As I sleep I weep in misery. Oh stars that shine above me, Please send someone to love me And take my loneliness from me. I've never heard a lover's word in my ear, The life I've known has been so lonely and drear. In dreams men's eyes assume a gay light That with the daylight disappear. Time is fleeting, fate is treating me wrong, Why must I wait so long? Lonely woman, lonely woman, As I sleep I weep in misery. Oh stars that shine above me, Please send someone to love me And take my loneliness from me. Lonely woman!
