I Can't Quit You Baby
Version 1
Well, I can't quit you baby, but I got to put you down for awhile
Well, you know, I can't quit you baby, but I got to put you down for awhile
Well, you know, you messed up my happy home baby
Made me mistreat my only child
Yes, you know I love you, baby, my love for you I'll never hide
Oh, you know I love you, baby, my love for you I'll never hide
Yes, you know I love you, baby, well you just my ordered size

Well, I'm so tired I could cry, I could just lay down and die
Oh, I'm so tired I could cry, I could just lay down and die
Yes, you know you my only darling, you know you my desire
When you hear me moaning and groaning
You know it hurts me deep down inside
Oh, when you hear me moaning and groaning
You know it hurts me deep down inside
When you hear me holler, baby, oh, you know you're my desire

Version 2

We-ell, I can't quit you baby
But I got to put you down a little while
We-ell, I can't quit you baby
But I got to put you down a little while
We-ell you done made me mess up my happy home
Made me mistreat my only child

Ah, when you hear me moanin' and groanin'
Whoa you know it hurts me way down inside
Whoa when you hear me moanin' and groanin'
You know it hurts way down inside
Oh when you hear me howlin'
Ooh you know my love will never die, all right

Well when you see me cryin'
Don't let my tears fall in vain
Well when you see me cryin, darlin'
Please don't let my tears fall in vain
Lord, I don't know what to do
You know my heart is filled with pain

Whoa, when you hear me howlin'
Baby, you know it hurts way down inside
