Little Esther Phillips & Al Downing – You Never Miss Your Water (Till The Well Runs Dry) lyrics

Uh oh, no water

Mmm, you never miss the water
Til the well runs dry
I never missed you, daddy
Til you said bye bye

Try me one more time (yeah, baby)
One more time (yeah)

I can't eat, I can't sleep
You know I'm just about
To lose my mind

Let me tell you something, baby
Took my love for granted
You did me wrong
Now you're crying, baby
Cause you want me home

Try you one more time
Whoa, one more time, pretty baby
You can't eat, you can't sleep
You're just about to lose your mind

Til the well runs dry (all right)
Til the well runs dry
(Oh, tell me about it, baby)
You know you never miss your water
Til the well runs dry, uh oh, no water

When I saw you, baby
And you looked so fine
(I know it, baby)

All I could say was
That you used to be mine
(You can't eat, you can't sleep)
I said I'm just about
To lose my mind, yeah

I said, you never miss the water
Til the well runs dry (yeah)
I never missed you, Al
Til you said goodbye

Come on and try me on more time
(Yeah) please, one more time
You know I can't eat, I can't sleep
I'm just about to lose my mind

Til the well runs dry
(Oh, til the well runs dry)
Til the well runs dry
(Whoa, tell me bout it, Esther)
You know you never miss your water
Til the well runs dry (uh oh, no water)

When I saw you, baby
And you know you looked fine
(Yeah) all I could say was
That you used to be mine
(You can't eat, you can't sleep)
Just about to lose my mind

Can't eat, can't sleep
Just about to lose my mind

Come on home (I'm home, baby)
