But then one day she came my way And I heard a voice within me say Don't let her get away Whatever you do But I never thought That this could be That she would ever Look at me seriously [CHORUS] And that's why I've got to be somebody I'm down on my knees Begging please please please please I've got to win her love for me I grew up on the sidewalks Got along the best I could Mama worked all day long And Papa was no good I've never asked for much before But here I am at Heaven's door So help me please Don't let her pass me by 'Cause I'd rather die than see Her love turn into sympathy for me (CHORUS) Got to be somebody Got to be somebody So tired of being a nobody I've got to be somebody I'm down on my knees Begging please please please please I've got to win her love for me
