She (Was My Baby)

I've been working every night and day For my baby so she won't run away I keep on begging and pleading Her love I'm always needing all the time Cause when I look into her eyes You know I realize that she's my baby And I just can't find the words to say Holding hands as we walk along She feels right, man, no she don't feel wrong She keeps on talking about leaving I know she's got a reason on her mind But when I look into her eyes You know I realize that she's my baby And I just can't find the words to say Now I can't keep those tears out of my eyes I'll never see my baby Now I'm walking but I walk alone I turned the ringer off my telephone I think about her and wonder The reasons why she had to say goodbye Cause when you look into her eyes You know I realize that she's my baby And I just can't find the words to say

No we don't know what to do about those goddamn animals Always thinking of what to do about those goddamn animals Should we feed them all to the goddamn manimals Yes we should be thinking of those goddamn animals It's only a shame It's leaking into my brain They must be onto our game Lonely animals Going to the petting zoo to see the goddamn manimals Open all the gates to free those goddamn manimals Catch them feed them all to those goddamn animals Yes we should be thinking of those goddamn animals It's only a shame It's leaking into my brain They must be onto our game Lonely animals Walked on down to the grocery store to see those goddamn animals Opened all the cellophane to pet those goddamn animals Opened up a petting zoo for those goddamn animals Yes we should be thinking of those goddamn animals It's only a shame It's leaking into my brain They must be onto our game Lonely animals

I met my baby after all kinds of moving and shaking She left me singing some sad sad songs about losing I've taken All kinds of grief she'd have you believe that we'd never be Oh, that's not all that she told me I don't wanna be with a turnaround girl I don't wanna be with a turnaround girl I couldn't be seen with a turnaround girl I don't wanna be with a turnaround girl Hey, everyone listen up now This is a warning The next time your ears whisper some lovely story Then your arms open up for all kinds of moving and shaking Whenever you turn around then you will feel your heart breaking I don't wanna be with a turnaround girl I don't wanna be with a turnaround girl I couldn't be seen with a turnaround girl I don't wanna be with a turnaround girl
