G                          D
When you were lonely, you needed a man
G                        D
Someone to lean on, well I understand
It's only natural
     D7                    G
But why did it have to be me

Nights can be empty, nights can be cold
So you were looking for someone to hold
That's only natural
But why did it have to be me

I was so lonesome, I was blue
G                                        D7
I couldn't help it, it had to be you and I
                                     G  G7
Always thought you knew the reason why
I only wanted a little love affair
Now I can see you are beginning to care
      G      C
But baby, believe me
       A7     G    D
It's better to forget me

Men are the toys in the game that you play
When you get tired, you throw 'em away
That's only natural,
But why did it have to be me?

Falling in love with a woman like you
Happens so quickly, there's nothing to do
It's only natural,
But why did it have to be me?
