The Life of Bert Williams
By: Kayla McCargo
Bert Williams in "Nobody"
Excerpt lyrics to Nobody:
When life seems full of clouds and rain
And I am full of nothin' and pain
Who soothes my thumping, bumping brain, hmmm?
When winter comes with snow and sleet
And me with hunger and cold feet
Who says, "Here's twenty-five cents, go ahead and get somethin' to eat, go on why doncha?"
I ain't never done nothin' to nobody
I ain't never doe nothin' to nobody, no time
So until I get somethin' from somebody sometime
I'll never do nothin' for nobody, no time
