About Somebody
“Somebody” was written for the 1960 movie Cinderfella, starring Jerry Lewis, Ed Wynn, Judith Anderson and Anna Maria Alberghetti as Princess Charming. Count Basie also appeared in the film as himself.


Everybody needs to care
For somebody
All your dreams were meant to share
With somebody

Someone to have a midnight cup of tea with
To have and hold and sometimes disagree with

Yes, it’s wonderful to live
For somebody
And the most you have to give
Is your love

In a cabin or castle
Even though you rise or fall
Without somebody
You’re nobody at all
