Sun a-shining, there's plenty of life 
A new day is dawning sunny and bright
But after I've been crying all night the sun is cold 
And the new day seems old
Since I lost my baby (since I lost my baby)
Since I lost my baby (since I lost my baby)
 
Birds are singing and the children are playing
There's plenty of work and the bosses are paying
Not a sad word should my young heart be saying
But fun is a bore and with money I'm poor
Since I lost my baby (since I lost my baby)
Since I lost my baby (since I lost my baby)
 
Next time I'll be kinder (next time I'll be kinder)
Won't you please help me find her (won't you please help me find her)?
Someone just remind her (someone just remind her)
'Bout this love she left behind her ('bout this love she left behind her)
'Til I find her I'll be tryin' now, every day I'm more inclined to find her 
Inclined to find her, inclined to find my baby
Been a-looking everywhere, baby, I really, really care
 
Oh, determination is fading fast 
Inspiration is a thing of the past 
Can't see my hope's gonna last 
Good things are bad and what's happy is sad
Since I lost my baby (since I lost my baby)
Since I lost my baby (since I lost my baby)
I feel so bad
Oh, I'll feel so sad 
Everything is wrong (since I lost my baby)
This heart is hard to carry on
(Since I lost my baby) I'm lost as can be
(Since I lost my baby) what's gonna happen to me?
