4 every night that U've been gone I've lit a candle
There must b 99 around my bed, around my bed
Lying awake all night long, tears n vain
Sometimes I think that I'd b better off dead
Bein' without U is murder, baby

Get n a taxi, subway train
Don't make me cry these tears n vain, baby
100 nights without U is murder, baby
101 just won't do
No

Ooh
Why do I cry 4 U? U probably found someone new
And no 1 deserves ya, I say, no 1 deserves ya like I do
Baby, U know it's true
Ooh, what we had U said was meant 2 b
If that was true, tell me, tell me why'd U leave?
Baby, I wanna know
I'm sick of, I'm sick of cryin' these tears n vain, baby
I'm sick of cryin' these tears n vain (Oh)

Get n a taxi, subway train
I'm goin' mad, baby, I'm goin' insane
Cryin' these tears n vain, don't U know?
(100 nights without U is murder, baby)
101 just won't do
No, no, no!

Listen...
Nothin' on TV (Yeah)
My girlfriends bore me
They want 2 please me (Yeah)
But I need my baby
U and me need 2 b 2gether, 2gether physically
Why can't U come see about me?
Why can't U come see about me?

Get n a taxi, subway train
Don't make me cry these tears n vain, baby
Ooh, 100 nights without U is murder, baby
But 101 just won't do
No, no!
Just won't do

I'm n a funk, I'm n deep
U got 2 come, baby, see about me
That 101, that 101 just won't do
No!
