Baby, baby, been a long, long time
Been a long, long time, been a long, long time
I was wrong girl and you were right

Baby, baby, took a long, long while
Took a long, long while, took a long, long while
But I found out you were right

Still you have those happy eyes
I will try and apologize

Baby, baby, still the same old smile
Still the same old smile, still the same old smile
I was so wrong girl and you were right

Still you have those happy eyes, yes
And I'm, I'm going to try, I'm going to try and apologize, oh

Baby, baby, been a long, long time
Been a long, long time, been a long, long time
I was wrong girl and you were right

Oh baby, baby, won't you change your mind?
Won't you change your mind? Won't you change your mind?
I was wrong girl but not this... no

I said baby, baby, it's been a long, long time
It's been such a long and lonely time, girl, it's been such a long, a long, long time
I was wrong but I admit, I admit you were right

Oh, come on now, baby, baby, I just want to change your mind
I wanted to change your mind, baby, I wanted to come on and change your mind
I was wrong, ah, ah, ah, oh

Come on now, baby...
