Come Back Baby

This song is by Steely Dan and appears on the compilation album Old Regime (1986) and on the compilation album The Steely Dan Collection (2000).

I don't like waiting for a knock on the door
I don't like wondering why
I got no mercy for a man and his tears
He's just living a lie
I got a feeling like I'm losing my cool
That's no way to be
You got me crying, got me playing the fool
That's what you're doing to me

Oh, you gotta come back baby
I don't want to say how long it's been
Five days and I gotta know now
Come back baby
I don't want to live alone again
My old man never told me how

I don't like lying all alone in my bed
Nobody calling my name
I can't say thank you for a kick in the head
But I need you just the same
See me settin' by the side of the road
People starin' and smilin'
They got no mercy for a man and his tears
Can't you hear me cryin'?

Oh, you gotta come back baby
I don't want to say how long it's been
Five days and I gotta know now
Come back baby
I don't want to live alone again
My old man never told me how

You gotta come back baby
I don't want to say how long it's been
Five days and I gotta know now
Come back baby
I don't want to live alone again
My old man never told me how
