Lyrics

Baby
Baby
Maybe I'm a fool to love you
Baby, you're driving me crazy
But I just can't help loving the things you do.

Morning is dawning
Still I get no messages from you
Evening and I'm still grieving
Life don't have no meaning without you

I don't care what your Mama say
I don't care what your Daddy do
The only thing that really brings me down,
Is the thought of ever leaving town without you

Baby
Why oh why are you making me so blue
Maybe you're trying to re-pay me
For all the bad times I gave you

Baby, I said baby
Maybe I'm a fool to love you
Baby, you're driving me crazy
But I just can't help loving the things you do

I don't care what your Mama say
I don't care what your Daddy do
The only thing that really gets me down,
Is the thought of ever leaving town without you

Without you
Ahhhhhhhhhh
Ahhhhhhhhhh
