IT AIN`T GONNA WORK BABY.
Well, you finally got around to telling me you don't love me huh!
I wondered when you'd get around to it.
But you know one thing girl:
I've known all along how you've felt.
As a matter of fact I've known ever since last summer.
But I just wanted to see how long it would take you to tell me.
I knew right after you and the baby got back from your vacation.
I guess I should have gone with you and maybe this wouldn't have
Girl you know I had to work.
But then another thing,
if I can't trust you out of my sight for three measly little weeks.
without you falling head over heals in love with some man that you'd
never seen before like some little school girl.
I don't guess we were meant for each other anyway
one more thing
when two people were in love as much as we were in love
and one lover stops loving, you can tell it, even a fool can tell it
but I gonna give you your freedom and let you go on back to him
well, just wait until I leave for work
will you do that for me, please ma'am?
Cause baby I don't think I could stand to see you leaving me
And takin my child for another man to raise
I'll leave you some money on the kitchen table on my way out
And you leave a forwarding address so the lawyer can send you the
I love you baby, but I also want to see you happy
And oh yeah one more thing
You don't have to tell me who he is but would you do something for me
I want you to tell me one thing, just tell me this girl
If you knew you didn't love me baby, why did you put up with me so
I would have understood baby much better than your leading me on
cause there're a lot of people in the world just like you and I today
One is in love with someone else and just looking for a chance to make
And when you got your body one place and your mind somewhere else
It ain't gonna work baby, no, no, no. It just ain't gonna work baby.
It ain't gonna work baby, no It just ain't gonna work baby.
You just go on back to him baby.
Don't stay around here with me another day.
Cause I realize now baby I couldn't have made you happy anyway.
You go on and try to do some good for yourself.
