So Smooth ~ 1955
 
Nobody (unreleased session song )
 
When life seems full of clouds an' rain
and I am filled with naught but pain,
who soothes my thumpin' bumpin' brain ?
Nobody . . .
 
When winter comes with snow an' sleet,
and me with hunger and cold feet,
who says " Ah, here's two bits, go an' eat!"
Nobody . . .
 
I ain't never done nothin' to nobody,
I ain't never got nothin' from nobody, no time!
And until I get somethin' from somebody, sometime, 
I don't intend to do nothin' for nobody, no time!
 
When I try hard an' scheme an' plan,
to look as good as I can,
who says " Ah, look at that handsome man!"
Nobody . . .
 
When all day long things go amiss,
and I go home to find some bliss,
who hands to me a glowin' kiss?
Nobody . . .
 
I ain't never done nothin' to nobody,
I ain't never got nothin' from nobody, no time!
And until I get somethin' from somebody, sometime, 
I don't intend to do nothin' for nobody, no time!
 
Nobody, no time!
