I Ain’t Got Nobody
Louis Armstrong And His Orchestra

There’s been a sayin’ goin’ round
And I begin to think it’s true
It’s awful hard to love someone
When they don’t care about you
Once I had a lovin’ gal
The sweetest little thing in town
But now she’s gone and left me
She done turn me down
Now I ain’t got nobody, and nobody cares for me!
That’s why I’m sad and lonely,
Won’t somebody come and take a chance with me?
I’ll sing you love songs, honey, all the time,
If you’ll only say you’ll be sweet gal of mine,
Oh, I ain’t got nobody, nobody cares for me!
I’ll sing you love songs, honey, all the time,
If you’ll only say you’ll be sweet gal of mine,
Oh, I ain’t got nobody, nobody cares for me!

And of course Louie Prima who put the song on the map (with Keely Smith). It was he @Pandora who threw “I ain’t got nobody” on the back of “Just a Gigolo”.
