Seven Years


It's been 7 years down the road

I got no more tears in me left to flow

When I did my baby wrong

She left me lonely for so long

Now I'm out here all alone

Lord won't you please bring my baby home (5x)

It go one for the treble two for the bass

Used to mess with this girl way back in the day

She was from the PJs

And she went both ways

Yeah the girl was a freak

I used to call her Monique

And before I even speak about knockin the boots

I say her name been changed to avoid law suits

So now we gettin' down to the nitty and the gritty

She brought her friend 'round and damn she was pretty

But Betty was twisted

Said her number was listed

Grabbed my love two fisted

Hugged it and kissed it

They say one in the hand is worth two in the bush

But when shove came to push

Yo I hard my own theory

World Series of love

It's 2 on 1

'Til I got caught with the smoking gun

????? came home and she bursted in

Now I'm looking for my heart like I'm made from tin

The road that I travel ain't got yellow bricks

My old woman thinks that all men are pricks

And she flipped the scripts

Went lip to lip

Every time I think about it I just lose my grip

Cause I've been up and I've been down

I've been fast and I've been slow

I've been square and I've been round

I've been high and I've been low

I've been cool and I've been calm

I've been kind and I've been crass

I held the whole world right in my palm

I tried to spread it around but it sure went fast

Lord won't you please bring my baby home

Lord won't you please bring my baby home

Bring my baby home
