Woke up this morning, thinking about you,
Night creeping, it's all that I could do.
Talked till ___ about someone whose situation ___ then I start singing,
Baby, my heart's breakin', don't cry, that's not the thing to do.
I'd rather be lonely ___ In the mornin' sleep sun comes shine baby,
Thanked by you and the bells start ringing and though you love me, 'cause
You made me believe you if you don't take up your ___
Your good thing's gonna leave, you're gonna cry, baby,
That's not the thing to do, I'd rather be lonely,
But start singing girl, you got me jumpin' o pretty mama,
But just what you're doing ___ any case I really can't say, my mind is reelin',
I got the craziest feeling, sweet baby,
Whatever you're doin', you do it the right way,
Whatever you're doin', that's all right with me.
Say believin', that doesn't sound right with me baby, I will cry,
I just wanted you to be happy, but can't you see girl ___
Every little once in a while, I'm gonna catch an old freight train.
And grab me a ___ you're ___ that's what you're gonna do, I'd rather be lonely.
My heart is jumpin' girl, you stared somethin' inside of me,
I don't know what it is, I just can't say, my mind is reelin',
I got the craziest feelin' inside of me,
Whatever you're doing, you do it the right way,
Whatever you're doin', that's all right with me.
So uptight I love you ___ girl, I tried to love you, but I can't do nothin' right.
You know I love you, you're my sweet lovin' baby, have a little ___
You're drivin' me crazy, makin' me cry, that's not the thing to do,
I'd rather be lonely ... It is hard ...
I'll tell you, baby, you trie
