Yeah, here I stand before you with my heart in my hand
I want you to great it baby, hopin' that you'll
I said baby, honey please don't dog me around
Because I'd rather love you woman, honey than anyone
Else I know in town

Because you're so nice and lovely and you have such
Pleasant ways
If you take to your heart I'll be there the rest of my
I said baby, that's the truth
Honey, I declare I wouldn't lie
Because I gotta love you baby
If I don't, I swear I hope I die

Oh baby, don't you want a man like me?
Can you hear me woman, don't you want a man like me?
You gotta think, you gotta think about our future, baby
And you forget about your used to be

Well, my days are long and dreary
And the sun refuse to shine
I will never be blue and lonely
Only if I knew where you are
I got the blues baby
You can make everything alright
Can I see you today baby
Or will it have to be tomorrow night

Yes, this is still my confession baby
And I'm thrilled by all your charms
It seems that I'm in heaven when I hold you in my arms
Baby, woman you can have me for yourself
You know I was meant for you baby
And I don't want nobody else, no I don't

Hey, you told me that you love me, woman, you meant it
From the start
You said that we would be together until death do us
But you lied to me baby, yes and you called it on the
Now how can I be happy woman, with all the wrong you

When you know just where I stand
I don't wanna lose you woman, wanna keep you if I can
But baby, baby you know I never had a friend
You're my one and only woman, you're all I have that
Now let me come in here
