Ooh...
Oh yeah

I keep ur picture beside my bed, mm
And I still remember everything U said, mm
Mmm
I always thought our love was so right, I guess I was wrong
Ooh
I always thought U'd b by my side, mama, now U're gone
What I wanna know, baby, if what we had was good
How come U don't call me anymore?
Yeah, oh anymore

Listen...
I still light the fire on a rainy night
I still like it better when U're holding me tight
OK, now umm...
Everybody said, everybody said that we should never part
Ooh yeah
I guess they thought we looked kinda cute 2gether, whataya say?
Tell me baby, baby, baby, why, why'd U wanna go and break my heart?
Why'd U wanna do it?
Baby
All I wanna know, baby, if what we had was good
How come U don't call me anymore?
Yeah
Why don't U call me, girl?
Oh yeah, ooh, oh yeah

Sometimes it feels like I'm gonna die
If U don't call me, mama
Girl, U got 2 try
Down on my knees beggin' U please, please!
Oh yeah, mmm
Why can't U call me sometime, baby?
It's just 1 lousy dime, baby
Why can't U call me sometime?
Oh no no
Why on earth can't U just pick up the phone?
Yeah
U know I don't like 2 b alone
Why, why must U torture me, baby?
Why U gotta treat me so bad?
Ooh
