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.
