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

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
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 live without you 'til the day that I die
So tell me, why baby, why baby, why baby why

Well, now I don't know, but I've heard say
That ever' little dog's a-gonna have his day
You'd better pay attention, don't you dare forget
'Cause I'm just a little bitty puppy yet

I caught you honky-tonkin' with my best friend
The thing to do was leave you, but I shoulda left 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
