Oh yeah
Somebody's somebody
Oh
Somewhere someone

It's 2 o'clock n the morning and I just can't sleep
Outside the rain is pourin', I'm lonely as can b
Maybe 2night'll b different than the nights b4
I need 2 feel someone beside me, I can't b alone no more

2night I wanna b somebody's somebody (Yeah)
2night I wanna belong 2 someone, someone
2night I wanna b somebody's somebody
2night I want somebody that'll do it till the job gets done
Oh yeah

This big ol' world can b so empty livin' n it all alone
I realize n its best disguise, a pretty house don't make a home
There's a hunger deep inside of me, how the fire burns
I wanna give good love 2 someone and get good love n return, oh

2night I wanna b somebody's somebody
2night I wanna belong 2 someone
2night I wanna b somebody's somebody (I wanna b somebody's body)
2night I want somebody that'll do it till the job gets done
Oh yes, oh yeah

Someone 2 hold me n that hour of midnight
Someone 2 console me when things ain't goin' 2 right
Someone 2 bring me dinner sometime, yeah (Mine, all mine)
Somebody I can call all mine
Ooh...

It's 2:05 n the morning and I got no 1 2 call
I'm longin' 2 hear another voice inside these lonely walls
Maybe 2night'll b different than the nights b4 (Maybe not)
I need 2 feel someone beside me, I cannot b alone no more, no more!

(2night I wanna b somebody's somebody)
Somebody's somebody
(2night I wanna belong 2 someone)
I don't wanna b alone, no no!
(2night I wanna b somebody's somebody)
I don't wanna wait another day, no!
(2night I want somebody that'll do it till the job gets done)
I'll do it over and over and over and over, yeah!

(2night I wanna b somebody's somebody)
Ooh! I don't wanna wait, no
(2night I wanna belong 2 someone)
Can I belong 2 U, baby? Oh yeah! (I wanna belong 2 someone)
(2night I wanna b somebody's somebody)
Ooh, slow, deep and long
(2night I want somebody that'll do it till the job gets done)
Do me over and over and over and over

(2night I wanna b somebody's somebody)
Oh yeah, if U're out there, come on, baby
I'll keep it hot 4 U
2night I wanna b somebody's somebody
Come on, baby
2night I want somebody that'll do it till the job gets done
Done (Oh yeah)
Ooh
Somebody's somebody
