They call… no date. I promised you I'd wait.
I want them all to know I'm strictly single, oh.

I'll walk alone because to tell you the truth I'll be lonely,
I don't mind being lonely when my heart tells me you are lonely too.
I'll walk alone, they'll ask me why and I'll tell them I'd rather.
There are dreams I must gather, dreams we fashioned the night you held me tight.

I'll always be near you wherever you are, each night in every prayer.
Just whisper, I'll hear you, no matter how far.
So, close your eyes and I'll be there.
Please walk alone, but send your love and your kisses to guide me.
Till you're walking beside me, I'll walk alone.
Darling, all by myself, I'll walk alone.

Lyrics by Sammy Cahn, music by Jule Styne. Also featured in the film "Follow The Boys" (1944).
