Doesn't Somebody Want to Be Wanted
The Partridge Family Lyrics


I go downtown and roam around but every street I walk I find another dead end
I'm on my own but I'm so all alone, I need somebody so I won't have to pretend
I know that someone's just waiting somewhere
I look around for her but she's just not there, oh!

Doesn't somebody want to be wanted like me?
Where are you?
Doesn't somebody want to wanted like me - just like me

I'm runnin' free but I don't want to be, I couldn't take another day like yesterday
I'm dead on my feet from walkin' the street, I need somebody to help me find my way
I've gotta get out of this town, before I do I'll take a last look around, though

Doesn't somebody want to be wanted like me?
Where are you?
Doesn't somebody want to wanted like me - just like me

[Spoken]
"You know, I'm no different than anybody else.
I start each day and end each night.
It gets really lonely when you're by yourself.
And where is love?
And who is love?
I gotta know."

Doesn't somebody want to be wanted like me?
Where are you?
Doesn't somebody want to wanted like me - just like me
[Reapeat... Fade]

Live action or the animated SERIES
I think it was funny just like the tv show.
Especially that funny funny amcanhanle dog Orbit.
Bow. Wow ruff ,rurr

Dog named Dino mutt.

Well to mancanchle dogs are better then one.

ilke the animation they did on them and they did
That's not bad of a band MANAGER it's like the the original from the live
Action SERIES of tv show.
I grew up watching them.
And like the music was out of sight i dig the the kids did grate on the instruments.
Can Sherly Jones play that key that song Better than ever she on cool partridge on can an instrument like her.
Way to .
Now that's why like a bout 70s.

The partidge family 200 ad.
Did Keith and LAURIE went Gaxs high.

All those grate characters.
Keep up the in cartoon history it belongs in artoon hall of fame.
Just like the others.

Thank god for Joseph Barbara and William Hanna.

And rest of the GANG.
Thank you a cartoon fan.

I go downtown and roam around but every street I walk I find another
dead end
I'm on my own but I'm so all alone, I need somebody so I won't have to
pretend
I know that someone's just waiting somewhere
I look around for her but she's just not there, oh!

CHORUS:
Doesn't somebody want to be wanted like me?
Where are you?
Doesn't somebody want to wanted like me - just like me

I'm runnin' free but I don't want to be, I couldn't take another day
like yesterday
I'm dead on my feet from walkin' the street, I need somebody to help me find my way
I've gotta get out of this town, before I do I'll take a last look
around, though


CHORUS

BREAK:

SPOKEN:
"You know, I'm no different than anybody else.
I start each day and end each night.
It gets really lonely when you're by yourself.
And where is love?
And who is love?
I gotta know."

I remember as a young kid in the mid 70s dad had all the car doors open one warm spring day, cleaning out the car with the radio playing a pop station and this song started playing. When it got to the part with him talking I thought "Hm, good song." I always kepted it tucked in my memory then later found out where it came from and such.

@Paulvon128 This single was released in February, 1971.

It's too bad David Cassidy hated this, because it's a damn fine song with a great melody.

L. Salisbury

That spoken bit really doesn't work...

One in a million

@Michael George he was under contract. They halted production of the show to talk him into it

Michael George

@Phil Montejano he's on record stating just that but he was glad to take the check
