Song 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 things,

i dare not hope for.

What can i hope for?

I wish i knew

Why do i try?

To draw you near me

I`m a poor fool

But what can i do

Oh baby i was born

To love you!

I Don`t think that there are many corrections 2 your song. My friend read it

and is giving it 2 her boyfriend!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great Song!!!!!!!

Your knew fans
