    Lyrics

    I have almost ev'ry thing a human could desire,
    Cars and houses, bear-skin rugs to lie before my fire
    But there's something missing,
    Something isn't there,
    It seems I'm negver kissing the one whom I care for.
    I want Something To Live For
    Someone to make my life an adventurous dream
    Oh, what wouln't I give for
    Someone who'd take my life and make it seem
    gay as they say it ought to be.
    Why can't I have love like that brought to me?
    My eye is watching the noon crowds
    searching the promenades seeking a clue
    To the one who will someday be my

    Something To Live For.
    I want Something To Live For
    Someone to make my life an adventurous dream
    Oh, what wouln't I give for
    Someone who'd take my life and make it seem
    gay as they say it ought to be.
    Why can't I have love like that brought to me?
    My eye is watching the noon crowds
    searching the promenades seeking a clue
    To the one who will someday be my
    Something To Live For.
