"This is my attempt to write a country song. I can't play the guitar or the drums so you'll just have to use your imagination when it comes to the instrumental."

Everybody Needs Somebody Sometimes

At a little bar called Shaggy's
at a table in the back
there's a fella with a deck of cards
all piled up in a stack
he ain't got no one to play with
so he sits and drinks alone
and he wonders if life's worth it
and who'll miss him when he's gone

Chorus:

And Everybody needs somebody sometimes
everybody needs to have a friend
somebody they can count on
someone waiting round the bend
somebody who will miss them
when their journey's at an end
Will you be somebody's somebody today?

A single woman at the park
wonders where she has gone wrong
it isn't that she missed him
she just wished he wasn't gone
she's waiting at the bus stop
and she's thinking bout her friends
and she wonders if they'd miss her
if her life came to an end

Chorus:

And Everybody needs somebody sometimes
everybody needs to have a friend
somebody they can count on
someone waiting round the bend
somebody who will miss them
when their journey's at an end
Will you be somebody's somebody today?

*Instrumental*

And Everybody needs somebody sometimes
everybody needs to have a friend
somebody they can count on
someone waiting round the bend
somebody who will miss them when their journey's at an end
Will you be somebody's somebody today?
Everybody needs a somebody
will you be somebody's somebody?
Everybody needs a somebody today
