Mr. Lonely
Bobby Vinton Lyrics


Lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
I have nobody for my own
Now I am so lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
Wish I had someone to call on the phone

Now I'm a soldier, a lonely soldier
Away from home through no wish of my own
That's why I'm lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
I wish that I could go back home
Letters, never a letter
I get no letters in the mail
I've been forgotten, yes, forgotten
Oh, how I wonder, how is it I failed

Now I'm a soldier, a lonely soldier
Away from home through no wish of my own
That's why I'm lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
I wish that I could go back home

Lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
I have nobody for my own
Now I am so lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
Wish I had someone to call on the phone
Now I'm a soldier, a lonely soldier
Away from home through no wish of my own
That's why I'm lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
I wish that I could go back home
Letters, never a letter
I get no letters in the mail
I've been forgotten, yes, forgotten
Oh, how I wonder, how is it I failed
Now I'm a soldier, a lonely soldier
Away from home through no wish of my own
That's why I'm lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
I wish that I could go back home

Lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
I have nobody for my own
I am so lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely
Wish I had someone to call on the phone

I've been forgotten, yes, forgotten
Oh, how I wonder, how is it I failed

Lyrics

Lonely
I’m Mr. Lonely
I have nobody
For my own
I’m so lonely
I’m Mr. Lonely
Wish I had someone
To call on the phone
Now I’m a soldier
A lonely soldier
Away from home
Through no wish of my own
That’s why I’m lonely
I’m Mr. Lonely
I wish that I could go back home
Letters
Never a letter
I get no letters
In the mail
I’ve been forgotten
Yeah, forgotten
Oh how I wonder
How is it I failed?
Now I’m a soldier
A lonely soldier
Away from home
Through no wish of my own
That’s why I’m lonely
I’m Mr. Lonely
I wish that I could go back home

Reminds me of my close friend from high school. He got shipped off to Vietnam a year later, and I wrote him several times over the two years he was there, and he told me no one else had written him but me. Not even his high school sweetheart who found someone else while he was gone, and fighting for his country. He finally made it home, too bad it was in a coffin with an American flag draped over it. He was killed  week before he was to return to the states. I still think about him from time, to time, although it seems like another lifetime now. He was 19 years old.

@daniel C. I'm sorry for your loss, a lot of my family and family friends either are or are friends with Vietnam veterans. I remember asking my father "did any of your friends get drafted?" and he said "yes", I asked "did they come back?" and he said "some did and some didn't". Nobody in that war deserved to die, they were just children, I'm sure your friend was a good man, and I'm sure if there's an afterlife that he's smiling down upon you.

Hi everyone I'm still here after 6 years telling the story of my good friend who died in Vietnam at 19 years old. Thank you all for your kind thoughts, and always remember our boys who fought and died for our country. Also rememberber those who made it home. God bless America.

@Agent Fungus wow so sad

Pam Benoit

@daniel C. wow what a sad situation. I'm sure he is better off but it still is hurtful.

Pam Benoit

@daniel C. I wonder if she ever felt guilty. How did her relationship with the other guy end up.

Song is 10x sadder when you realise is about soldiers in the trenches who don’t receive any letters from people back home. They’ve been forgotten. And a lot of them died feeling like that

Lemon

Correct me if I'm wrong, but there was no trench warfare in Vietnam (the war the song is referring to).

Now i feel bad for listening to this just because i don’t have a gf/bf, thanks bro
