Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Come on, pretty baby Honey, what's wrong with you? Come on, pretty baby Honey, what's wrong with you? I feel so bad and I don't know what to do

Last night, you was cryin' I know what I'm talkin' about. Yeah Last night, you was cryin' I know what I'm talkin' about
The daylight come all you want To do is sit and pout. Oh, oh, yeah

You can talk to me, baby Is it something that I said or done? You can talk to me, baby Is it something that I said or done? When you feel like this, Lord My life just ain't no fun. Yeah

Come on, pretty baby Honey, what's wrong with you? Hey Come on, pretty baby Honey, what's wrong with you? You feel so bad and I don't know what to do
