HER LYRICS

WHY WAS I BORN?
Oscar Hammerstein II / Jerome Kern


Why was I born

Why am I livin'

What do I get

What am I givin'

Why do I want for things

I dare not hope for

What can I hope for

I wish I knew

Why do I try

To draw you near me

Why do I cry

You never hear me

I'm a poor fool

But what can I do

Oh baby why was I born

To love you
