I'm Nobody's Baby - versão original

I used to be my mother's baby,
When I was near my dad went wild
Whenever we had company
They'd bounce me on their knee,
The neighbors thought I was a darling child.
Once I was everybody's baby,
But right now I'm lonesome as can be.

You see I'm Nobody's Baby, I wonder why,
Each night and day I pray the Lord up above,
Please send me down somebody to love;
But nobody wants me, I'm blue somehow,
Won't someone hear my plea and take a little chance with me,
Because I'm Nobody's Baby now.
