I've been holdin' out so long
I've been sleepin' all alone
'Cause I miss you
I've been hangin' on the phone
I've been sleepin' all alone
I want kiss you

Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa
Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa
Whoa whoa whoa whoa
Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa
Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa
Whoa whoa whoa whoa

I've been moanin' in my sleep
You've been starrin' in my dreams
'Cause I miss you, child
I've been waitin' in the hall
I've been waitin' on your call
And the phone rings
It's just a friend of mine sayin'
"Hey, hey, what's the matter with you, girl?
We're gonna come about twelve
With some bad Puerto Rican dudes
Ah, they're gonna be just dyin' to meet you
We're gonna bring a case of wine
And we're gonna mess around like we used to"

La la la la la
La la la la
La la la la la la la la
La la la la

Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa
Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa
I miss you, baby

Baby, why did you wait so long?
I wanna know, yeah, yeah
Baby, why did you wait so long?
Hey, come on, come on

I've been walkin' Central Park
Singin' after dark
People think I'm crazy
Stumbling on my feet
Shufflin' through the street
Asking people, "Hey, what's the matter with you, boy?"
Sometimes I wanna say to myself
Oh oh oh oh

Whoa whoa whoa whoa
Oh, whoa whoa whoa
Oh, whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa
Oh, whoa whoa whoa, babe
Oh, whoa whoa whoa, baby

Guess I'm lying to myself
There's just you and nobody, nobody else
'Cause I miss you, baby
I've been waitin' in the hall
Waitin' on your call
And the phone rings
It's just a friend of mine sayin'
"Hey, hey, girl, what's the matter with you?
We're gonna come about twelve
And, with some Puerto Rican dudes
Oh, ay, ay ay ay ay
They're just dyin' to meet you
We're gonna bring a case of wine
And we're gonna mess around
You know what I mean, like we used to"

La la la la

I've been waitin' in the hall
Waitin' on your call
Whoa, 'cause I miss you, baby
I guess I'm lyin' to myself
There's just you and no on else
Believe me, baby
And I miss you, baby
