Paul McCartney – Say Say Say lyrics

Say, say, say what you want
But don't play games with my affection.
Take, take, take what you need
But don't leave me with no direction.

All alone, I sit home by the phone,
Waiting for you, baby (baby)
Through the years how can you stand to hear
My pleading for you, dear?
You know I'm crying.
Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo, yeh, yeh.

Now, go, go, go where you want,,
But don't leave me here forever.
You, you, you stay away,
So long, dear, I see you never.

What can I do, girl, to get through to you?
'Cause I love you, baby (baby)
Standing here, baptised in all my tears,
Baby, through the years,
You know I'm crying.


You got to say, say, say,
Got to say, say, say.

You never ever worry,
And you never shed a tear.
You're saying that my love ain't real,
Just look at my face, these tears ain't drying.

You, you, you can never say,
That I'm not the one who really loves you.
I pray, pray, pray every day
That you'll see things, girl, like I do.

What can I do, girl, to get through to you?
'Cause I love you, (love you) baby (baby)
Standing here, baptised in all my tears,
Baby, through the years.
You know I'm crying,


You got to say, say, say.
