Baby, I got the best intentions
But I just can't do it
Baby, I got the truest aim
But I just can't win

Baby, I got a good vibration
But I just can't play it
Baby, I spent my only fortune
On the wages of sin

So you, you gotta be extra forgivin'
And you gotta be super strong
You gotta be true romantic
I want you to look the other way
Everythin' goes wrong

Baby, you took all the good stuff
And put it all together
And you took all the bad stuff
And you threw it all away

Would I still be the girl
That suits your fancy?
Would I still be the boy
Who rocks your world?

If you get lonely, the trouble and the chaos
If you get bored, since you walked away
Remember what I told you
When the night was darkened
You can leave me all you need to
Baby, I'm here to stay

Baby, I'm gonna be extra forgiving
And I'm gonna be super strong
'Cause baby, I'm, I'm a true romantic
I'm gonna look the other way
When everything goes wrong
