Lyric:

I don't know why I love you, baby
I don't know why I love you
I don't know why I love you, baby
But I love you, darling, yes I do

You always treat me like a fool
You kick me when I'm down, that's your rule
I don't know why I love you, baby
But I love you, baby

When are you going to stop your cheating ways
With another guy? You laugh in my face
Just how long must I be disgraced?
Cause I love you, baby

I tell you now, I don't know, I don't know why, baby
I don't know, I don't know why, baby
I don't know why I love you, baby
But I love you, baby
