  • Lonely I'm so lonely
    I have nobody
    To call my own
    I'm so lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
    I have nobody
    To call my own
    I'm so lonely

    Yo this one here goes out to all my players out there
    Ya know got to have one good girl whose always been there
    Like ya know took all the bullshit
    Then one day she can't take it no more and decides to leave

    I woke up in the middle of the night
    And I noticed my girl wasn't by my side
    Coulda sworn I was dreamin', for her I was feenin'
    So I hadda take a little ride
    Back tracking ova these few years
    Tryna figure out what I do to make it go bad
    Cause ever since my girl left me
    My whole left life came crashin'

    I'm so lonely (so lonely)
    I'm Mr. Lonely (Mr. Lonely)
    I have nobody (I have nobody)
    To call my own (to call my own) girl

    I'm so lonely (so lonely)
    I'm Mr. Lonely (Mr. Lonely)
    I have nobody (I have nobody)
    To call my own (to call my own) girl

    Can't believe I had a girl like you
    And I just let you walk right out of my life
    After all I put you through
    You still stuck around and stayed by my side
    What really hurt me is I broke your heart
    Baby you were a good girl and I had no right
    I really want to make things right
    Cause without you in my life girl

    I'm so lonely (so lonely)
    I'm Mr. Lonely (Mr. Lonely)
    I have nobody (I have nobody to call my own)
    To call my own (to call my own) girl

    I'm so lonely (so lonely)
    I'm Mr. Lonely (Mr. Lonely)
    I have nobody (I have nobody)
    To call my own (to call my own) girl

    Been all about the world ain't never met a girl
    Hat can take the things that you been through
    Never thought the day would come
    Where you would get up and run and I would be out chasing you
    Cause ain't nowhere in the globe I'd rather be
    Ain't no one on the globe I'd rather see
    Than the girl of my dreams that made me be so happy
    But now so lonely

    So lonely (so lonely)
    I'm Mr. Lonely (Mr. Lonely)
    I have nobody (I have nobody)
    To call my own (to call my own)

    I'm so lonely (so lonely)
    I'm Mr. Lonely (Mr. Lonely)
    I have nobody (I have nobody)
    To call my own (to call my own) girl

    Never thought that I'd be alone
    I didn't think you'd be gone this long
    I just want you to call my phone
    So stop playing girl and come on home (come on home)
    Baby girl I didn't mean to shout
    I want me and you to work it out
    I never wished I'd ever hurt my baby
    And it's drivin' me crazy cause

    I'm so lonely (so lonely)
    I'm Mr. Lonely (Mr. Lonely)
    I have nobody (I have nobody)
    To call my own (to call my own)

    I'm so lonely (so lonely)
    I'm Mr. Lonely (Mr. Lonely)
    I have nobody (I have nobody)
    To call my own (to call my own) girll

    Lonely, so lonely
    So lonely, (so lonely)
    Mr. Lonely, so lonely
    So lonely, so lonely, (so lonely), Mr. Lonely
