Let Me Be Lonely

Janis Ian

Ooo, let me be lonely
I'd rather be by myself
than with you acting holy
I want to be with the one I want to be
or else i want to be free
Ooo, let me be lonely

Saving up for a rainy day or
donate to charity? Iimpossible
Think you'll make history?
Improbable
Give your love to me

Ooo, let me be wanted
I've a right to tonight to delight
When you got it you flaunt it
And if you're not what you seem to be, then
how come you're coming on strong?
Ooo, lemme be wanted

All you do with your time is tease me
Couldn't you find the time to please me?
With your kind it looks so easy,
shoving the blues away

Ooo, let me be lonely
I'd rather be by myself, acting holy
I want to be with the one
Ooo, let me be lonely

All you do with your timeā€¦
Couldn't you find the time?
With your kind it's done!
Uh-huh
