REFRAIN 1
Once I had a gal,
Sweet as she could be
Once I had a gal
And she was right for me.
Kind of sandy hair,
Eyes so soft and blue
That you couldn't help but care
When she looked at you.
She called me "baby",
"Baby" all the time.
REFRAIN 2
She said, "Baby can't you see?"
"Baby, understand?"
"Baby, you're for me"
"Won't you take my hand?"
But I pushed her away
Wouldn't let her near
Pushed her far away
And now I'm wishing I could hear
her call me "baby",
"Baby" all the time.
INTERLUDE
REFRAIN 3
It's so lonely through the day,
Lonely through the night.
Lonely, lonely hours
Without that gal I held so tight.
Lord I pray that you
Will listen to my plea
Keep her close to you
So she'll come back to me,
And call me "baby",
"Baby" all the time.
