why baby why lyrics – james taylor

tell me why baby, why baby, why baby why
you’d make me cry baby, cry baby, cry baby
i can’t help but love you ’til the day that i die
tell me, why baby, why baby, why baby why

well i got a crow i wanna pick on you
just like last time when the feathers flew
you’re out there honky tonkin’, kickin’ up your heels
leavin’ me at home with a hand full of bills
can’t live without you and you know it’s true
but there’s no livin’ with you so what’ll i do
i’m goin’ honky tonkin’, gettin’ drunk as i can
maybe by then you’ll ‘preciate a good man
(that’s what i plan)

tell me why baby, why baby, why baby why
you make me cry baby, cry baby, cry baby cry
i can’t help but love you ’til the day that i die
tell me why baby, why baby, why baby why
(tell me why)

well, i’ve caught you honky tonkin’ with my best friend
the thing to do was leave you, and i should’a left then
love you so much, but i still get sore
when you come home a-feedin’ for the kn*b on the door

i don’t know, but i’ve heard say
ever’ little dog is a-gonna have his day
you’d better pay attention, don’t you dare forget
’cause i’m just a little bitty puppy dog yet

tell me why baby, why baby, why baby why
you make me cry baby, cry baby, cry baby
i can’t help but love you ’til the day that i die
tell me, why baby, why baby, why baby why
(tell me why)

thank you
