Saucy's Plea

Why canít you love me,
Why does no one care?
My heart cries out for tender love
But thereís none anywhere.

Is it because Iím not pretty like Carol
Or funny like Rose?
Is it because Iím much too fat
Or maybe my big nose?

Is it because Iím not very good
Iíll try real hard you know?
Iíll do all that you tell me
Only let what you want show.

All I ask is that you love me,
Hold me close and tight;
Tell me that Iím special
Even if only in your sight.

Without that, lifeís not worth living
The painís too much to bearó
Oh if love were but for the asking
If you could only care.
