(aubrey holt/bmi)

You walked up yesterday and you told me you were leavin'
Left a note sayin' momma won't be back
But you'll come back and I've got news for you dear
You won't have a home and that's a fact

Don't you come back on your knees asking my forgiveness
Pack your bags and move on down the line
Don't you roll them eyes at me, tellin' me your sorry
It's too late babe, and it won't work this time

I've always been around, lord when you needed someone
I played the role 'til I knew each line by heart
But now it's time to change, won't you find another playmate
Someone who'll be glad to play the part

Don't you come back on your knees asking my forgiveness
Pack your bags and move on down the line
Don't you roll them eyes at me, tellin' me your sorry
It's too late babe, and it won't work this time

Don't you come back on your knees asking my forgiveness
Pack your bags and move on down the line
Don't you roll them eyes at me, tellin' me your sorry
It's too late babe, and it won't work this time
