i ain’t got nothing lyrics – temptations

you know, every house has a door and every room has a floor.
every fence has a gate and every beast has a mate.
everybody, everybody’s got something but me.
i ain’t got nothing.

every stove has a fire and every car has a tire.
every fish has a bowl and every shoe has a sole.
everybody, everybody’s got something but me.
i ain’t got nothing.

now i don’t care about politics and things across the sea.
all i want all i want to do is love
and have somebody love me. i need i need somebody.

every lion has a den and every little pig has its pen.
every road has a way and (they tell me) every dog has its day.
everybody, everybody’s got something but me.
i ain’t got nothing i ain’t got nothing. oh no.
(repeat to fade)
