  • Come back
    Baby, come back
    Baby, come back
    Baby, come back

    This is the first time until today
    That you have run away
    I'm asking you for the first time
    Love me enough now to stay (all right)
    Hey (all right)
    Hey (all right!)
    Hey, yeah

    Come back
    Baby, come back
    Baby, come back
    Baby, come back

    There ain't no use in you crying
    'Cause I'm more hurt than you
    I shoulda not been out flirting
    But now my love is true
    Ooh (all right)
    Ooh (oK!)
    Ooh, yeah

    Come back
    Baby, come back
    Baby, come back
    Baby, come back

    Come back, baby, don't you leave me
    Baby, baby, please don't go
    Oh, won't you give me a second chance?
    Baby, I love you so (all right)
    Oh (oh, yeah)
    Oh
    Oh, yeah

    Come back
    I said baby, come back
    I said baby, come back
    Oh won't you please come back
    Oh won't you please come back Writer/s: Eddy Grant

  • Mark HaleyPat Lloyd told me the record was produced by Tony Clarke.
  • Alan T from Uk There are claims (for example in his obituary iun the London Times) that Moody Blues producer Tony Clarke produced "Baby Come Back". However the original label image does not credit a producer. The album label only credits "Edward Kassner" as producer - so not sure what the truth of all that really is. Anyone know for sure?
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyIn 1978 the band Player released a completely different song titled "Baby Come Back", it peaked at #1 in the USA!!! {NOTE: The Equals actually had a comma after the word 'Baby', Player didn't}
  • Neil from Middlesbrough, United StatesThis song was also Covered by Pato Banton in the UK where it was Number 1
  • Jim from North Billerica, MaBonnie Raitt does a cover of this.
