Tell me why baby, why baby, why baby, why
You make me cry baby, cry baby, cry baby, cry
I can't help but love you 'til the day that I die
But tell me, why baby, why baby, why baby, why

Well I got a crow I wanna pick with you
Just like last time when the feathers flew
You're runnin' wild a-kickin' up your heels
A-leavin' me home with a hand full of bills

I can't live without you and you know it's true
But there's no livin' with you, so what'll I do
I'm goin' honky tonkin', get as tight as I can
And maybe by then you'll 'preciate a good man

Tell me why baby, why baby, why baby, why
You make me cry baby, cry baby, cry baby, cry
I can't help but love you 'til the day that I die
So tell me why baby, why baby, why baby, why

Tell me why baby, why baby, why baby, why
You make me cry baby, cry baby, cry baby, cry

Well, I don't know, but I've heard say
Ev'ry little dog is gonna have his day
You'd better pay attention, don't you dare forget
'Cause you're sincerely not just a little bitty puppy yet

I caught you honky tonkin' with my best friend
What I shoulda done was quit you way back then
Now I'm too old to leave you, but I still get sore
When you come home a-feelin' for the knob on the door

Tell me why baby, why baby, why baby, why
You make me cry baby, cry baby, cry baby, cry
I can't help but love you 'til the day that I die
So tell me, why baby, why baby, why baby, why
