Irving Berlin - One OClock In The Morning I Get Lonesome lyrics

Jonesy with a frown was telling Mister Brown
"Old pal, I'm just as sick as I can be
Most ev'rything I've done, the doctors ev'ry one
In vain have tried to find a cure for me
They doctor me until I almost faint
They help'd me not for this is my complaint

One o'clock in the morning I get lonesome
One o'clock in the morning I get blue
But my wife and family won't stay up with me
So I've got to leave the house and hunt for company
Going in and out the diff'rent places
Places where they've thrown away the key
I just hunt until I'm wild
For a woman, man or child
Who is troubled with the same complaint as me

Many doctors thought an operation ought
To be the very thing without a doubt
They ether'd him, the fools, then went to get their tools
Came back at one to cut his lonesome out
They found a dozen nurses by his side
They ask'd him to explain and he replied

One o'clock in the morning I get lonesome
One o'clock in the morning I get blue
All the ether 'neath the sun, ether by the ton
Couldn't keep me sleeping when the clock is striking one
So you'll have to wait until tomorrow
Soon I'll be as busy as a bee
For I've got an awful hunch
There's a nurse among the bunch
Who is troubled with the same complaint as me
