what a price lyrics – fats domino

i tried so hard

to do what’s right
oh, what a price
but you only
i had to pay
wrecked my life
for loving you

you-ooo-ooo
oh, what a price

i had to pay
i bought a home
for loving you
i diamond ring
you-hoo-hoo-hoo
i had to give up

ev’rything
i stopped my ramblin’

i even stopped gamblin’
oh, what a price
i even stopped
i had to pay
staying out all night
for loving you

you-hoo-hoo
oh, what a price

i had to pay
i tried so hard
for loving you
to do what’s right
you-mm-hm-hm
but you only

wrecked my life
you heard my story

i sing my song
oh, what a price
so, goodbye baby
i had to pay
i’m gone
for loving you

you-hoo-hoo-hoo
oh, what a price

i had to pay
i stopped my ramblin’
for loving you
i even stopped gamblin’
you-ooo-hoo-ooo.
i even stopped

staying out all night
~

oh, what a price

i had to pay

for loving you
you-mm-hm-hm

you heard my story
i sing my song
so, goodbye baby
i’m gone

oh, what a price
i had to pay
for loving you
you-ooo-hoo-ooo.
