The Bar-Kays – Standing On The Outside lyrics

You and I, we were alright
And then you suddenly changed
Without a cue, I had lost you
As if I never knew your name

So many things to say
And I need to find a way
?Cause it?s though you're here but gone
And I'm left here all alone

On the outside, well
(Standing on the outside)
Whoa, baby
(Standing on the outside)
I'm standing on the outside, yeah
(Standing on the outside)

Maybe you do, then maybe you don't
Or maybe you don't even care
He has no love and he has no heart
And baby, I know that's not fair, no baby

So many things to say
And I need to find a way
?Cause it?s though you're here but gone
And I'm left here all alone

On the outside, oww, whoa, baby
(Standing on the outside)
Whoa, ho, yeah
(Standing on the outside)

I'm standing on the outside, yeah, yeah
(Standing on the outside)
Can't you hear me callin', baby
(Standing on the outside)

Oh, I'm, whoa, I'm
(Standing on the outside)
Hmm, hmm, hmm
(Standing on the outside)
I'm, oh, I'm
(Standing on the outside)
Oww, whoa, man

Hmm, hey
Well, oww

(Standing on the outside)
Ow, can't you hear me callin', baby
(Standing on the outside)
Oh, I'm, whoa, I'm
(Standing on the outside)

Girl, won't you let me in
(Standing on the outside)
Hey, hey, hey, hey
(Standing on the outside)

I'm standing on the outside, yeah, yeah
(Standing on the outside)
Whoa, let me in
(Standing on the outside)

I'm standing on the outside, yeah
(Standing on the outside)
Can't you hear me callin', baby
(Standing on the outside)

Oh, I'm, oh, I'm
(Standing on the outside)
Hey, hey, hey, I'm
(Standing on the outside)

Just won't you let me in
(Standing on the outside)
Can't you hear me talkin' now?
(Standing on the outside)
Hey, yeah

Standing on the outside
Standing on the outside
Standing on the outside
