Remember the day you up and left 
I nearly cried myself to death, oh yeah 
And then I met someone else 
She made me stop and get a hold of myself 

Oh girl, I'm doin' fine now 
Without you, baby 
I'm doin' fine now 
Without you baby 

Remember the day you walked away 
I ran behind you and I begged ya to stay, oh yeah 
But you never heard a word I said 
You kept on steppin' 
Never turning your head, yeah 

Oh girl 
I'm doin' fine now 
Without you, baby 
I'm doin' fine now 
Without you, baby 


I'm doin' fine now 
Without you, baby 
I'm doin' fine now 
Without you, baby 
(I'm doin' fine now) 
Hey, you had a chance now
Baby, baby
(I'm doin' fine now) 
(Without you baby)
