As the wind blows in passing
Baby, I think I'm fallin' in love with you
Where you go when you go, baby, what you do?
I know you got to get your hustle on

So gone baby, gone baby, don't be long
Gone baby, gone baby, don't be long, ooh, ooh
Gone baby, gone baby, don't be long
So gone baby, gone baby, don't be long

Where you going, won't you stop, baby, what's the rush?
You got me feelin' like a girl with the faintest crush, hey
When you go, when you go, boy, I miss you much
But I know you got to get your hustle on

So gone, so gone baby, gone baby, don't be long
So gone baby, gone baby, don't be long, ooh, ooh
Gone baby, gone baby, don't be long
I know you got to get your hustle on

So gone baby, gone baby, don't be long
Gone baby, gone baby, don't be long, ooh, ooh
Gone baby, gone baby, don't be long
I know you've got to get your hustle on

I can't wait to see what you do
It's not too much to follow you through
I can't wait to see what you be
I'm gon' be here 'cause I believe, so don't go, baby

There is only one thing I'm still asking
Why is that I feel you masking?
If it's love that you feel that is really real
And I know you've got to get your hustle on

You laugh when you ask, baby, what's the rush?
When we touch, wanna know if it's love or lust, oh
'Cause I feel like a girl with the faintest crush
And I know you've got to get your hustle on

So go, gone baby, gone baby, don't be long
So gone baby, gone baby, don't be long, ooh, ooh
Gone baby, gone baby, don't be long
You're gone baby, gone baby, don't be long

I can't wait to see how you move
Well, I do watch you do what you do
Well, I can't wait to see what you be
I'm gon' be here 'cause I believe, so don't go, baby

Gone baby, gone baby, don't be long
So gone baby, gone baby, don't be long, ooh, ooh
Gone baby, don't be long
Ooh, ahh, ahh, ahh, ma, pa, pa, pa, pa
Whoa, oh, gone baby, don't be long, ahh, ahh, ooh, ooh
