Ooh, let me be lonely
I'd rather be by myself
Than with you acting holy

I want to be with the one
I want to be
Or else I want to be free
Ooh, let me be lonely

Saving up for a rainy day
Or donate to charity, impossible
Think you'll make history
Improbable, give your love to me

Ooh, let me be wanted
I've a right to tonight to delight
When you got it you flaunt it

And if you're not
What you seem to be then
How come you're coming on strong?
Ooh, let me be wanted

All you do with your time is tease me
Couldn't you find the time to please me?
With your kind, it looks so easy
Shoving the blues away

Ooh, let me be lonely
I'd rather be by myself
Acting holy
I want to be with the one

Ooh, let me be lonely
All you do with your time
Couldn't you find the time?
With your kind it's done
