Why Was I Born? lyrics

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
Im a poor fool
But what can I do
Oh baby why was I born
To love you
