  • We got debutantes and socialites
    And mamas from the PTA
    We got bachelorettes dressed up in white
    And little black dress divorces

    Long live the blues
    They're keeping me in business
    Some wanna dance and some wanna party
    Whatever they need, they call me

    Mr. Lonely, Mr. Good-Time
    Mr. One-You're-Gonna-Want-On-A-Saturday-Night
    When you're lonely, lying in the dark
    I'm the number that you know by broken heart
    No, I ain't Mr. Right, I'm Mr. Right-Now
    The one all the girls are talking about
    The one and only, Mr. Lonely

    Yeah, some are in from out of town
    Just lookin' for some fun
    For a couple of hours or more
    Yeah, I can be the one

    Long live the blues
    I'm booked up to November
    You can find me in the book or on a bathroom wall
    When they all want a rendezvous, they call

    Mr. Lonely, Mr. Good-Time
    Mr. One-You're-Gonna-Want-On-A-Saturday-Night
    When you're lonely, lying in the dark
    I'm the number that you know by broken heart
    No, I ain't Mr. Right, I'm Mr. Right-Now
    The one all the girls are talking about
    The one and only, Mr. Lonely

    Oh, play that steel, Paul

    So if you got a girl, you better treat her right
    You better never tell a lie
    You better never start a fight
    'Cause when she hangs up on you
    Guess who's on the other line?
    He's never hard to find

    Mr. Lonely, Mr. Good-Time
    Mr. One-You're-Gonna-Want-On-A-Saturday-Night
    When you're lonely, lying in the dark
    I'm the number that you know by broken heart
    No, I ain't Mr. Right, I'm Mr. Right-Now
    The one all the girls are talking about
    The one and only, Mr. Lonely
    The one and only, Mr. Lonely
