Oh baby, as the bitter tears fall from your eyes
Oh, a thousand times you ask yourself why
The one guy you loved has departed
Oh, you're left alone and brokenhearted

Love just comes and it goes
How long it's gonna' last
Said nobody knows

That's the way, love is baby
(That's the way love is, sho' 'nuff how it is)
Oh, that's the way, love is sugar
(That's the way love is, sho' 'nuff how it is)
That's how it is
Oh, that's how it is my little darlin'

Yeah now, I know you walkin' down a lonesome road
And your heart is carryin' a heavy load
I know you feel like you ain't got a friend
(Feel like you ain't got a friend)
Oh, and your whole world is cavin' in
(Whole world is cavin' in)

Oh but now is the time to be strong
(Now is the time to be strong)
You've gotta' forget him now that he's gone
(Forget him now that he's gone)

And remember, that's the way, love is honey
(That's the way love is, sho' 'nuff how it is)
That's the way, love is baby
(That's the way love is, sho' 'nuff how it is)
That's how it is
Oh oh, my little darlin'

Oh baby

Oh, listen to me little darlin'

The road of love gets rough sometimes
Don't let it get the best of you
Said I've been hurt by love so many times
(Been hurt by love so many times)
So I know just what you're goin' through
(Know just what you're goin' through)

You wish that you were never born
(Wish that you were never born)
You've got to forget him, now that he's gone
(Forget him, now that he's gone)

Just remember
That's the way, love is baby
(That's the way love is, sho' 'nuff how it is)
Oh, that's the way, love is honey
(That's the way love is, sho' 'nuff how it is)
That's how it is

So wipe away your tears
Love is here today, and gone tomorrow
(That's the way love is, sho' 'nuff how it is)
I say all of your joys turn to sorrows
(That's the way love is, sho' 'nuff how it is)
One day gladness and the next day sadness
(That's the way love is, sho' 'nuff how it is)
Oh, that's the way, love is baby
