When You're Good You're Lonesome - Song and Lyrics by Grace Doro

When You're Good You're Lonesome

When You're Good You're Lonesome

Year 1920

Words and Music by Grace Doro

Jerome H. Remick and Co.
New York and Detroit

  First Verse
I feel so sad and lonely I wish I knew just why Every one is happy, While all I do is sigh. I walk the straight and narrow path I'm good as I can be; Maybe that's just what is wrong, For it seems to me.

Second Verse
My mother always told me "Be very, very good;" I took her advise, Like a good child always should. I went to bed at eight o'clock But what did that get me? I have missed an awful lot, Now I plainly see.

Chorus
When you are good, you're so lonesome, And when you're lonesome you're blue; Sometimes it seems very hard to believe Every dark cloud has a silver lining I think it'll get me a sweetie who'll make afuss over me, Just love and pet me all the day; Then I'll never have to say When you are good you're so lonesome, And when you're lonesome you're blue.
