Why Can't I
Eartha Kitt Lyrics


Feeling the way I do, I'd like to say "I do!"
Heaving a heavenly sigh
Everybody has a someone
Why can't I?

Creeping to bed alone, resting my head alone
Only my pillow nearby
Some have a reason for dreaming
Why can't I?

I feel forsaken on nights like this
Can't I awaken to someone's kiss?

Only my book in bed knows how I look in bed
Nobody hears when I cry
Everybody has a someone
Why can't I?

Feeling the way I do I'd like to say, "I do!"
Nature is hard to deny
Everybody has a someone
Why can't I?

Feeling the way I do, I'd like to say "I do!"
Nature is hard to deny
Everybody has a someone
Why can't I?

If love brings merriment, I must experiment
With some electrical guy
Even old maids find a burglar
Why can't I?

Should girls be good girls?
I think they should
I need a good man to make me be good

Two feet are ever cold
Four feet are never cold
I only mean to imply:
Everybody has someone
Why can't I?

Everybody needs someone
Why can't I?

As Malcolm X said, the most unprotected and most disrespected woman in America is the black woman.
