Please Tell My Baby

please tell my baby, tell her everything I say
please tell my baby, how it had to be this way
please tell my baby, I'm going far away
please tell my baby, I don't know how long I'll stay

I don't want her to wait for me, like I'm off to war
I don't want her to stay up late, not a minute more
she should be making plans with another guy
instead of still holding onto another lie

please tell my baby, I will never be the same
please tell my baby, and it's really just a shame
please tell my baby, it's nothing that she said
please tell my baby, it's just something in my head

I made it to the Holy Bridge, but I couldn't cross
I know what I'm giving up, and it's quite a loss
I'm never gonna meet a woman half as sweet as you
and now that you're gone forever, I'm forever blue

and there might come a day
when I look back and say
I was such a fool when I threw it all away
but no mater how hard I try
I can't seem to tie
a knot in my ramblin' heart that makes me want to stay

please tell my baby, she's the best I ever had
please tell my baby, I hope she's not too sad
please tell my baby, I love her to this day
please tell my baby, tell her everything, everything I say
