Don't know why
I'm survivin' ev'ry lonely day
When there's got to be no chance for me
My life would end

And it doesn't matter how I cry
My tears, so far, are a waste of time
If I turn away
Am I strong enough to see it through
Go crazy is what I will do

If I can't have you
I don't want nobody baby
If I can't have you, uh-huh, oh
If I can't have you
I don't want nobody baby
If I can't have you, uh-ho, oh oh oh

Can't let go and it doesn't matter how I try
I gave it up
So easily
To you my love
To dreams that never will come true
Am I strong enough to see it through
Go crazy is what I will do

If I can't have you
I don't want nobody baby
If I can't have you, uh-huh, oh 
If I can't have you
I don't want nobody baby
If I can't have you, uh-ho, oh

If I can't have you
I don't want nobody baby
If I can't have you, uh-huh, oh
If I can't have you
I don't want nobody baby
If I can't have you, uh-ho oh
If I can't have you
I don't want nobody baby
If I can't have you, uh-huh, oh
If I can't have you
I don't want nobody baby
If I can't have you, uh-ho oh
If I can't have you
