Ask the Lonely
Vonda Shepard Lyrics

Just ask the lonely

When you feel that need
To make it all alone,
Remember no one is thinking of,
Going alone

Just ask the lonely
They know the hurt and pain,
Of losing a love, you can never regain

Just ask the lonely
Just ask the lonely

The young and foolish laugh at love (Woo hoo)
So they run away (Woo hoo hoo hoo)
Confident and sure that fate (Woo hoo)
Will bring another love their way

(Ah) But ask the lonely
(Ah) How vainly a heart can yearn,
(Ah) For losing a love that will never return

Just ask the lonely
Just ask the lonely
They'll tell you

Ooh, Woo hoo hoo hoo ooh

(Ah) They'll tell you a story of sadness,
(Ah) A story too hard to believe
Ah, they'll tell you the loneliest one is me

Just ask the lonely
Just ask the lonely

Ask me
I'm the loneliest one you'll see

Just ask the lonely

Stunning looks and great voice. Thanks for your music.


I must have been in a fog - I really just found Vonda Shepard's music ... wow - great job on all of these covers ... I equate her to a female version of Johnny Rivers ... Thx for posting this wonderful song !

Fabulous!! Takes me back!! Vonda, you rock 🎸🎸🎸


I never missed Ally McBeal just to watch Vonda sing in the bar.


Not much of a country follower but I sure love this song. Four Tops were great in this originally.


This was about the only song by the 4 tops that i liked.


This was originally by The 4 Tops, and on most days, it is not only my favorite 4 Tops song, but my favorite Motown song (of ALL Motown songs). I think that theyt should be mentioned in the same breath as this song when it is discussed.

Wasn't she on Ally McBeal?

Hasa Ke

Yes. In retrospect that was a good series.
