Frank Sinatra - "Why Was I Born?" lyrics

Why was I born, why am I livin''
What do I get, what am I givin''
Why do I want a thing I daren't hope for'
What can I hope for' I wish I knew

Why do I try to draw you near me'
Why do I do I cry' You never hear me
I'm a poor fool, but what can I do'
Why was I born to love you'
<instrumental-first two lines of second verse>

I'm a poor fool, but what can I do'
Why was I born to love you'


Some other versions may include an intro:
Spending these lonesome evenings with nothing to do
But to live in dreams that I make up all by myself
Dreaming that you're beside me, I picture the prettiest stories
Only to wake up all by myself What is the good of me by myself'
