Well I heard my baby, yes I heard my baby on the radio
And I miss my baby and I curse the day I ever let her go
She sang so sweetly yes she sang so sweetly, nearly made me cry
Well I hurt my baby so I lost my baby now didn’t I?

Well I watched my baby, yes I watched my baby give an interview
And she looked so pretty it was such a silly foolish thing to do
Then they showed her picture yes they showed her picture with another guy
Well I hurt my baby so I lost my baby now didn’t I?

Didn’t I take her for granted?
Didn’t I take her for a ride?
Didn’t I do just what I wanted
Till the love inside her died?
Didn’t I neglect her, disrespect her and affect her confidence?
All she had to do was collect the evidence

Well I begged my baby yes I begged my baby “come on back to me”
She said “I’m sorry honey, go spend your money in the duty free”
I said “it’s not over,” she said “yes it’s over here’s a kiss goodbye”
Well I hurt my baby so I lost my baby now didn’t I?
Yes I hurt my baby so I lost my baby now didn’t I?
Yes I hurt my baby so I lost my baby now didn’t I?
