Tell me why baby, why baby, why baby, why
You make me cry baby, cry baby, cry baby, cry
I can't help but love you 'til the day that I die
But tell me, why baby, why baby, why baby, why

Well I got a crow I wanna pick with you
Just like last time when the feathers flew
You're runnin' wild a-kickin' up your heels
A-leavin' me home with a hand full of bills

I can't live without you and you know it's true
But there's no livin' with you, so what'll I do
I'm goin' honky tonkin', get as tight as I can
And maybe by then you'll 'preciate a good man

Tell me why baby, why baby, why baby, why
You make me cry baby, cry baby, cry baby, cry 
No, I can't help but love you 'til the day that I die
So tell me why baby, why baby, why baby, why

Well, now I don't know, but I've heard say
That ev'ry little dog is a-gonna have his day
You'd better pay attention, don't you dare forget
'Cause I'm just a little bitty puppy yet

Well, I caught you honky tonkin' with my best friend
The thing to do was leave you, but I should'a left then
Now I'm too old to leave you, but I still get sore
When you come home a-feelin' for the knob on the door

Tell me why baby, why baby, why baby, why
You make me cry baby, cry baby, cry baby, cry
Lord, I can't help but love you 'til the day that I die
So tell me, why baby, why baby, why baby, why

Tell me, why baby, why baby, why baby, why
