If you go downtown
Way down to Baltimore Street
You just might see my baby there
Yeah, my baby might be someone you meet

Yeah, if you go downtown
And you take yourself a look around
You just might see my baby there
And the new love that she has found

She got the right way
Of loading up her gun
But she's got the wrong direction
'Cause she say that I ain't the one

She got the right way
Of walking down the street
But she got the wrong direction
'Cause she be walking away from me

If you go downtown
No, mister, I don't like to go there much myself
I just might see my baby there
And that might break my heart and I don't need the help

Yeah, if you go downtown
And see a beauty unlike any you've known
Well, you know that was my baby once
But now I feel like I'm all alone

She got the right way
Of loading up her gun
But she's got the wrong direction
'Cause she say that I ain't the one

She got the right way
Of walking down the street
But she got the wrong direction
'Cause she be walking away from me

The last time that I saw my baby
It sounded so well rehearsed
When I said, "I'll see you later"
And she said, "Not if I see you first"
(So get out of town)

If you go downtown
Now, mister, I don't want to tell you what to say
But if you see my baby there
Could you lie and tell her I'm doing okay?

'Cause if you go downtown
And you take yourself a look around
You might see my baby there
And the new love she has found

She got the right way
Of loading up her gun
But she's got the wrong direction
'Cause she say that I ain't the one

She got the right way
Of saying I love you
But she got the wrong direction
'Cause it ain't me she's saying it to
