[Verse 1] You’re like a baby grown weary of play, I’m like the toy you’ve tossed out of your way, But like a baby you’ll want me again, When you’re alone, Then sadness you’ll find.
[Chorus] Some day you’ll sigh, Some day you’ll cry, You will be pining for me You’ll realize, Your tears and sighs, Won’t find the same sympathy Since I’ve confessed, I love you best, You think no other will do But some day when you’ll want me back, Then maybe I won’t want you.
[Verse 2] You’ll miss the sunshine when clouds fill the sky, You’ll miss the water when deep wells run dry, Tho’ out of sight, I’ll still be in your mind, When you’re alone, Then sadness you’ll find
