Can't Stop Her Now

Baby says she's gonna leave
she slid aces up my sleave
I'm not sure just what she said
both my ears are filled with lead
she took all my garbage bags
and all my hard earned cleaning rags
and left me with a bed that sags, oh jeez
you know I love my baby, but I can't stop her now
I love my baby, but I can't stop her now

I don't know but I've been told
city girls are lined with gold
someone asked me how I knew
I spent a week in east Peru
that's where I saw city hicks
and women who chased candy sticks
and even dogs that had no ticks, oh jeez
you know I love my baby, but I can't stop her now
I love my baby, but I can't stop her now

woke up moaning feeling blue
baby's found somebody new
gone and left me in my sleep
rode off on some counting sheep
now I'm broke and all alone
she even took my telephone
and I'm late on my auto loan, oh jeez
you know I love my baby, but I can't stop her now
I love my baby, but but I can't stop her now
