Bye Bye Baby
Mary Wells Lyrics


Well, you know you took my heart
And you broke it apart
Why did our love baby, yeah yeah
Have to ever start

[Chorus:]
You know you took my love, threw it away
You gonna want, my love someday
Well a bye bye baby
(Bye, bye, bye)

Well I thought your love
Was oh so true
And you lured me baby, yeah
Started loving you

[Chorus]

Well, your love was
Sweeter than
Any I know
So don't come back
Running
Knockin on my front door

Well you said that I
Was your only girl
And there was no others, yeah
In this whole wide world

[Chorus]

Well, your love was
Sweeter than
Any I know
So don't come back
Running
Knockin on my front door

Well you said that I
Was your only girl
And there was no others, yeah
In this whole wide world

[Chorus]

Whoah, bye bye baby
(Bye, bye baby)
Bye, I don't want you know more
(Bye, bye, bye)

Bye, bye baby
(Bye, bye baby, bye bye)
Whooo, don't need your love, yeah yeah
(Bye, bye baby, bye bye)
I don't want you baby, whoooo
(Bye, bye baby, bye bye) [Repeat x 4]

She was so much more talented and prettier than Diana Ross.

Jack Woodhouse

Monica K., Here we go! Why are people always comparing? Just be quiet, please. Obviously, Berry knew how to pick talent. Diana Ross is a different kind of singer than Mary was. Both are amazing singers. Diana has a voice that was able to cross over to pop radio which is where the money was made. Stop comparing! Damn, just appreciate that those women worked their asses off at their craft. If I hear one more person trying to compare, I am going to sh*t! Lol

Ronald Murchison

Was Motown's first female recording artist. Her and her mother showed up at the studio with this song, Mary had written it, and wanted someone to sing it and Berry Gordy suggested she sing it herself and the rest is history.

timothyy pearson

She cornered Gordy off at the club in Detroit she sanged it he was impressed invited her to sign her and her mother showed up due to her age.

David Leist

She wrote it for Jackie Wilson. However, Gordy had severed ties with Wilson's manager when Gordy broke away to form Motown.

Brian Peraza

This song is really marvelous, it shows what humans can do (in the broadest sense of the term). It makes me think how a human can sing like that, how a human can make a technology to capture that moment so well and how we have advanced in those technologies and techniques. It makes me think how a human can do so bad to another human for him/her to write a song and sing it like this.

BAREBACKER

she sounds RAW on here because berry gordy was unhappy with the sound and made her do about 15 takes by which time she sounded hoarse but gave him the sound he was after

Jack Woodhouse

BAREBACKER, I don't think that's true. Naturally, Mary had a raspy singing voice and I think this was one of her first recorded songs and Barry wanted to see how her voice would sound and if people would take to it. He then had her to start singing softer as she started recording more songs. However, you could be right. I just hadn't heard that one before.

K Moore

BAREBACKER And years later, she died of throat cancer

Susan Lee

LOVE LOVE LOVE this song. This is real music.
