Baby, baby, black and blue, time sure took a toll on you
What you, what you gonna do tomorrow?
Oh oh, no no

Oh the world has got you down, cry your heart out on the ground
Gimme strength to pick you up and keep you from dying
Give me strength and give me love, I can never have enough
All I want is someone who will never stop trying

Baby baby, black and blue, time sure took a toll on you
What you, what you gonna do tomorrow?
I don't wanna see you cry, got to make you realize
You got more to give me than your sorrow

Yes, yes, yes, yes you do now
Yes, yes, yes, baby, yes you do now
Yes, oh yes, yes you do, oh yes, yes, yes, yes
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes you do, I, I, I, I know

Far away in my first dream, visions that are lost in me
Touch me when I'm touching you, ever so gently
Can you feel it? Yes you can, just give me your little hand
I will show you someone that you never thought you'd be

Baby baby, black and blue, time sure took a toll on you
What you, what you gonna do tomorrow?
I don't wanna see you cry, got to make you realize
You got more to give me than your sorrow

Yes, yes, yes, yes you do now
Yes, yes, yes, baby, yes you do now
Yes, oh yes, yes you do
Oh yes, yes, yes you do

There's a big door with a little window
And the big world is peekin' through
Lay your head here on my pillow
I want to take care of you

There's a big door with a little window
And the big bad world is peekin' through
Lay your head on my pillow
I want to take care of you

Yes, yes, yes, yes I do now
Yes, yes, yes, baby, yes I do now
Yes, oh yes, yes I do, oh yes, yes, yes, yes
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes I do, I, I, I, I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid

Oh the world has got you down, cry your heart out on the ground
Gimme strength to pick you up, pick you up, pick you up
Oh the world has got you down, cry your heart out on the ground
Gimme strength to pick you up, pick you up, kick you up

Baby baby, black and blue, time sure took a toll on you
What you, what you gonna do tomorrow?
I don't wanna see you cry, got to make you realize
You've got more to give me than your sorrow
