112 – Paul Anka – Lonely boy (1959)


Lonely boy foi escrita e gravada por Paul Anka em 1959. Anka cantou essa música no filme Girls Town. Foi lançada pelo selo ABC-Paramount e teve Your love como lado B.

Chegou ao número 1 dos charts americanos, se tornando a primeira canção de Paul Anka a conseguir esse feito, apesar dele ter tido o disco mais vendido com Diana em 1957.

A letra:

I'm just a lonely boy
Lonely and blue
I'm all alone
With nothin' to do
I've got everything
You could think of
But all I want
Is someone to love
Someone, yes, someone to love
Someone to kiss
Someone to hold
At a moment like this
I'd like to hear
Somebody say
I'll give you my love
Each night and day
I'm just a lonely boy
Lonely and blue
I'm all alone
With nothin' to do
I've got everything
You could think of
But all I want
Is someone to love
Somebody, somebody
Somebody, please
Send her to me
I'll make her happy
Just wait and see
I prayed so hard
To the heavens above
That I might find
Someone to love
I'm just a lonely boy
lonely and blue
I'm all alone
With nothin' to do
I've got everything
You could think of
But all I want
Is someone to love
