What are the lyrics to No Man Left For Me in Will Rogers Follies?

Alone again and blue He's left me alone again - what's new All I do is sit and stare At a snapshot and an empty chair What goods a man who's never there He's a trav'ling man, He's a flying man, After dinner speaker, Speachifying man, He's a one man show on the radio He's a columnist, Friend of president, Movie star for the nations residents Zigfeilds staring man, Walking talking man, Mr busy bee. There's no man left for me Sometimes I tell myself the worms turning I'll pack a bag and leave him flat But every time I start This feeling floods my heart He needs me to feed the cat But when I'm by myself I'm so lonesome A party makes it twice as grim The people laugh and play My mind is miles away Its off on the road with him Hotel staying man, Suitcase packing man, When I look around me he's the lacking man He's most anywhere, Land or sea or air As an absentee He's a winner man Out for lunch and won't be home for dinner man Loop the looping man, Fly the cooping man Its so plain to see He wont miss me He don't need me Gonna get away from Mr busy bee I can't make love to a shadow And there's no man left for me
