Once I had a man,
Sweet as he could be.
Once I had a man,
And he was also right for me.
Kind of sandy hair,
Eyes so soft and blue
That you couldn't help but care
When he looked at you.
He called me "Baby"...
"Baby", all the time.

He said, "Baby, try to see
"Baby, understand
"Baby, you're for me,
Won't you take my hand?"
But I pushed him away,
Wouldn't let him near
Pushed him far away
Now I'm wishing I could hear him
Call me "Baby"...
"Baby", all the time.

It's so lonely through the day,
Lonely through the night,
Lonely, lonely hours
Without that man I held so tight.
Lord, I pray that You
Will listen to my plea.
Keep him close to You
So he'll come back to me,
And call me "Baby"...
"Baby", all the time.
