  • Dear miss lonely hearts
    I had to write this letter
    To tell you how I came to meet her
    She was sweet but I dated her sister
    That's how I made my mistake
    And I can't forget her
    I felt depressed
    Till a friend of mine suggested
    That I write to this address
    So unless you can find a cure
    For my loneliness
    It will persist, it will persist

    Lonely boy
    Looking for another
    Lonely girl
    To love one another
    Lonely hearts
    Turn to each other
    Lonely souls
    Lonely souls

    Dear lonely boy
    I doubt if my reply
    Will bring much joy
    It seems from your letter that you lied
    Or strongly implied
    That you were satisfied
    To take her sister by your side
    I became distressed
    At your total lack of tactfulness
    So at best
    All I can suggest
    Is that you resist
    And you put an end
    To such thoughts of silliness

    Lonely boy
    Looking for another
    Lonely girl
    To love one another
    Lonely hearts
    Turn to each other
    Lonely souls
    Lonely souls

    Dear miss lonely hearts
    I've got problems
    You're the only one I know that can solve them
    I love a girl but I'm dating her sister
    And if I persist in my pursuit I will kiss her

    Dear lonely girl
    I doubt if this reply will bring much joy
    But you must not trust this boy
    You must not lust this boy
    Resist
    And do not kiss this boy

    Lonely boy
    Looking for another
    Lonely girl
    To love one another
    Lonely hearts
    Turn to each other
    Lonely souls
    Lonely souls

    Lonely boy
    I'm writing
    Lonely girl
    Looking for a lonely girl
    Lonely hearts
    I'm lonely
    Lonely souls
    I've got problems you can solve them
    Lonely girl
    I'm writing to dear miss lonely hearts
    For I'm a lonely soul
    Yours sincerely
    Lonely boy
    Lonely girl
    Must be attractive
    Lonely hearts
    Please send a photo
    Lonely souls
    One lonely boy
    Is looking for another
    Lonely girl
    To love one another
    Lonely hearts
    Answer me
    Answer my plea
    Answer me
    Lonely boy
    Looking for a female
    Lonely girl
    Please send details Writer/s: JAMES STEWART BAIN, PHILIP PARRIS LYNOTT
