Lyrics BABY,
WHY DO YOU THINK
WHAT I SAY
AIN'T TRUE?
YOU'VE GOT
A LOT OF NERVE
TO THINK
WE AIN'T THROUGH,
AND WITHOUT ME,
PRETTY BABY,
YOU WON'T
EVEN HAVE A CRUMB
TO EAT.
I'VE BEEN LISTENING
TO THAT JIVE
THAT YOU GAVE
YOUR ALL TO ME,
ALL I EVER GOT
FROM YOU
WAS AN EMPTY STOCKING
HANGING
ON MY CHRISTMAS TREE;
NOW THAT I'M LEAVING YOU,
PRETTY BABY,
WHERE
WILL YOUR
NEXT MEAL BE?

I TOLD YOU
THAT I LOVED YOU,
BUT THAT
WAS LONG AGO.
WHEN I WAS YOUNG
AND SIMPLE,
DIDN'T HAVE THE SENSE
TO KNOW.

SO I'M DOIN, IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT;
NOW THAT I'M LEAVING,
PRETTY BABY,
WHERE WILL
YOUR NEXT MEAL BE?

I KNOW
I SAID I LOVE YOU,
I LOVE YOU,
LOVE YOU,
LOVE YOU SO,
BUT YOU AIN'T
GONNA HEAR
THOSE SWEET WORDS
NO MORE.
AND WITHOUT ME,
PRETTY BABY,
YOU WONT EVEN
HAVE A CRUMB
TO EAT.
I'M NEVER GONNA SAY
I'VE CHANGED MY MIND,
BECAUSE IF I DO
I KNOW
ILL BE LYING;
NOW I'M LEAVING,
PRETTY BABY,
WHERE WILL YOUR
NEXT MEAL BE?

I TOLD YOU
THAT I LOVED YOU,
BUT THAT
WAS LONG AGO.
WHEN I WAS YOUNG
AND SIMPLE,
DIDN'T HAVE THE SENSE
TO KNOW.

SO I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
I'M DOIN' IT,
AND IM GLAD;
AND WITHOUT ME,
PRETTY BABY,
YOUR LIFE'S GONNA BE
MIGHTY SAD!
