Hey
Hey, hey
Yeah
Hey baby
Hey baby

The phone is ringing
And I'm runnin' late
No time to get it
'Coz I'm expecting you at eight
Heard your voice on the message
I'm surprised you called
Said you're all tied up
And you ain't comin' at all

If you're not gonna love me right
Baby, don't love me
At all
You're just gonna make me crazy
If you're not gonna love me right
Baby, don't love me
At all
If you're not gonna love me right
Baby don't love, baby don't love me
At all
Baby don't love, baby don't love me
At all

Hey, another box of roses
Outside on my porch
Twelve long excuses
None of them stop the hurt
Where's this going?
Do you really care?
Is this real love
I don't know anymore, I swear

If you're not gonna love me right
Baby don't love me
At all
Baby don't make me crazy
If you're not gonna love me right
Baby don't love me
At all
If you're not gonna love me right, yeah
Baby don't love, baby don't love me
Oh baby
Baby don't love, baby don't love me
I really want you, oh baby
Baby don't love, baby don't love me
You're not gonna love me right
Baby don't love, baby don't love me
Baby just make me crazy

{Baby, I want you here
If you're not here it makes me feel like
I can't trust you
You makin' me crazy, if you really love me
You see}

Oh, I get confused
When you hold me next to you
I wanna go further
Oh baby, yes I do
An' I just can't hold on
To somethin' that won't last
So we'd better slow down
An' maybe not go so fast
Maybe not go so fast

If you're not gonna love me right
Baby don't love me
At all
You're just gonna make me crazy
If you're not gonna love me right
Baby don't love me
At all
If you're not gonna do it right
If you're not gonna love me right
Baby don't love me
At all
Just gonna make me crazy
If you're not gonna love me right
Baby, don't love me
At all
You're just gonna make me crazy

Baby don't love, baby don't love me
Baby don't love, baby don't love me
Baby don't love, baby don't love me
Baby don't love, baby don't love me

Baby don't love, baby don't love me
Baby don't love, baby don't love me
Baby don't love, baby don't love me
If you're not gonna do it right

Baby don't love, baby don't love me
If you're not gonna do it right
Baby don't love, baby don't love me
If you're not gonna do it right

Baby don't love, baby don't love me
Baby don't love, baby don't love me
Baby don't love, baby don't love me
Baby don't love, baby don't love, baby don't love me
