"Wish Someone Would Care" as written & recorded by Irma Thomas, 1964
Sitting home alone, thinkin' about my past
Wondering how I made it, and how long it's gonna last
Success has come to lots of them, and failure's always there
Time - time waits for no one, and I wish,
How I wish someone would care
Some folks think you're happy, when you wear your smile
What about your tribulations, and all, all of your trials
Smiles! - smiles hide a lots of things
The good, the bad, the hurt, all of this goes too, and I wish,
I wish! - how I wish someone would care
I wish someone would care
Don't you think someone should care?
Oh, don't you think someone should care?
Sit down and think about yourself
Ah, don't you think . . . .
