  • So many ladies love you with the innocence of a child
    A child who believes in God
    You keep 'em in luxury
    But it's a luxury in the dark

    You walk around with a smile upon your face
    But there's something that you don't know
    You're luck's run out
    And it's a time for you to know

    Everybody told me I was crazy
    To try to tame such a wild one
    Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby

    I got myself into this thing
    Like I never knew I could an' now
    I gotta get away just as fast as I can
    I got myself into this thing an' I'll find a way out

    You gave me babies, to you that proves your love
    Tie my hands with jewels
    Barefoot an' pregnant you kept me
    You sought to hide me from the truth

    But your lady's done bought some shoes
    And she's steppin' out on the town
    Your lady took herself in hand
    And she's spreadin' herself around, alright

    I wanted your love but not at any price
    You're just the hurtin' kind
    Say you want me for yourself
    But your deeds deny it

    Everybody told me I was crazy
    To try to tame such a wild one
    Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby

    I got myself into this thing
    Like I never knew I could an' now
    I gotta get away just as fast as I can
    I got myself into this thing an' I'll find a way out
