All Alone

By Irving Berlin
1924

One of several pop waltzes composed by Berlin, it was actually introduced by acclaimed Irish opera legend John McCormack in 1925. However, the most famous version of the song would probably be the one recorded by Frank Sinatra nearly 60 years later for the album of the same name.

Lyrics:

All alone, I'm so all alone,
There is no one else but you.
All alone, by the telephone,
Waiting for a ring, a ting-a-ling.

I'm all alone every evening,
All alone, feeling blue.
Wond'ring where you are, and how you are,
And if you are all alone, too.

Recorded By:

Thelonious Monk
Jessica Williams
Julie London
Sarah Vaughan
Artie Shaw
