Written by Joey Coco
Produced by Prince
4 every night that u've been gone i've lit a candle
There must be 99 around my bed, around my bed
Lying awake all night long tears in vain
Sometimes I think that i'd be better off dead
Being without you is murder baby
Get in a taxi, subway train
Don't make me cry these tears in vain, baby
A hundred nights without u is murder baby
A 101 just won't do, no!
Why do I cry 4 u - u probably found someone new
And no one deserves ya, I say, no one deserves ya like I do
Baby u know it's true
Oooh - what we had u said was meant 2 be
If that was true tell me why'd u leave
Baby, I wanna know
I'm sick of, i'm sick of, i'm sick of
Crying these tears in vain baby
Why don't cha get in a taxi, subway train
I'm going mad baby
I'm going insane baby don't cha know
101 just won't do - no, no listen
Nothing on TV, my girlfriends bore me
They try to please me but I need u baby
U and me need 2 be together, together physically
Why can't you come see about me?
Why can't you come see about me?
U've got 2 get in a taxi, subway train
Don't make me cry these tears in vain, baby
A hundred nights without u is murder baby
A 101 just won't do, no!
No just won't do
I'm in the funk
I'm in deep
U got to come baby see about me
That 101 just won't do
