  • Hurry up and find the one
    Who makes you feel like you've become complete (whoa, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah)
    Feed the kids and wash their clothes
    Be jealous of a life that's out of reach (whoa, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah)

    You never felt that way inclined
    It's taken all the years to find out you're free, supposedly

    And all your sisters and your brothers
    All have significant others of their own (whoa, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah)
    Must be a thousand times she told ya
    That your body's getting older, don't you know? (Whoa, oh)

    Don't that make you feel alone?
    Don't that make you feel alone?
    Don't that make you feel alone?
    Don't that make you feel alone?
    When you're on your own?
    (Whoa, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah)

    You'll get married to a man
    That has all the desired plans for life (whoa, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah)
    You didn't think you'd end up here
    And you'd be more than just somebody's wife (whoa, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah)

    You're out of time is what they said
    Now look who's sleeping in your bed
    You're still free, supposedly

    All your sisters and your brothers
    All have significant others of their own (whoa, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah)
    Must be a thousand times she told ya
    That your body's getting older, don't you know? (Whoa, oh)

    Don't that make you feel alone?
    Don't that make you feel alone?
    Don't that make you feel alone?
    Don't that make you feel alone?
    When you're on your own?

    Whoa, whoa, whoa, yeah, yeah, yeah

    Oh, don't that make you feel alone?
    Don't that make you feel alone?
    Don't that make you feel alone?
    Don't that make you feel alone?
    When you're on your own? Writer/s: Benjamin Jackson-Cook, Bill Banwell, Rory Charles Graham
