Lyric:

You don't know what's going on
You've been gone for far too long
You can't come back and think you are still mine

You're out of touch, my baby
My poor discarded baby
I said Baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

Well baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
I said Baby, baby, baby, you're out of time
(Yes) You are left out
Out of there without a doubt 'cause
Baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

The girl who wants to run away
Discovers that she's had her day
It's no good your thinking that you are still mine

You're out of touch, my baby
My poor unfaithful baby
I said Baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

You thought you were a clever girl
Giving up your social world
But you can't come back and be the first in line, oh no

You're obsolete, my baby
My poor old-fashioned baby
I said Baby, baby, baby, you're out of time

Sing the song now...
