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 I was born to love you

Songwriters
KERN, JEROME / HAMMERSTEIN, OSCAR II
