I’m Lonely, So Lonely

I'm Lonely, So Lonely
I'm lonely, so lonely.
I'm always alone.
I never get emails
or calls on my phone.
I sit by myself
in my room every day,
and wonder why nobody
wants to go play.
My classmates avoid me.
They never say, "hi."
They don't seem to know
I'm a wonderful guy.
And even the strangers
I see on the street
go out of their way
to make sure we don't meet.
They jump and they run
to get out of my path.
I guess maybe this year
I'll take my first bath.
