  • Ooo la la la la
    I did you wrong my heart went out to play
    But in the game I lost you
    What a price to pay, hey I'm crying

    Ooo baby baby
    Ooo baby baby

    Mistakes I know I've made a few
    But I'm only human
    You've made mistakes too, I'm crying

    Ooo baby baby
    Ooo baby baby

    I'm just about at the end of my rope
    But I can't stop trying I can't give up hope
    'Cause I feel that one day I'll hold you near
    Whisper I still love you
    Until that day is here I'm crying

    Ooo baby baby
    Ooo baby baby
    Ooo baby baby
    Ooo baby baby ooo Writer/s: CLIFFORD N. BRANCH JR., PHYLLIS ROBINSON
