Lyrics

You Was Right, Baby

You said some day you'd turn the tide,

And I'd be laughing on the other side,

And you was Right, Baby,

Baby, you was so right.

 

You said some day the worm would turn,

I had some lessons that I had to learn,

And you was Right Baby,

Baby, you was so right.

 

I gave you a story, You gave me the gate,

I wish you'd come back, but you say its too late.

I Look kinda silly left holding the sack,

I guess I'll hold it until you come back.

 

You said some day you'd pass me right by

That I'd been telling you just one too many lies,

And you was Right Baby,

Baby you was so right.
