  • Early in the morning, 'bout the break of day,
    That's when my baby went away.
    Come back, baby, I wish you would,
    Try and love me, you won't do no good.

    Walking and a-kissing late at night;
    I tell you now baby, I feel just right.
    Come now baby, whatcha trying to do?
    Trying to love me and some other man, too.

    Come now baby, give me one more chance.
    You know I still love you, want to give you romance.
    Yeah romance, all night long, in my arms, woah yeah.

    Early in the morning, 'bout the break of day,
    That's when my baby went away.
    Come back, baby, I wish you would,
    Try and love me, you won't do no good.

    You know baby that I love you so.
    You know, pretty baby, it hurts me to see you go.
    Oh yeah, oh yeah. Writer/s: WILLIAM ARNOLD
