Some time I wonder why you do these things to me
Some time I worry, girl, that you ain't in love with me
Some time I stay out late, yeah, I'm having fun
Yes, I guess you know by now that you ain't the only one

Yeah, and, baby, sweet things that you promised me, yeah
They seemed to go up in smoke, yeah, vanish like a dream
Baby, I wonder why, yeah, you do these things to me

(Cause) I'm worried
(Yeah) And I just can't seem to find my way

Baby

Ooh the nights I spend just waiting on the sun, oh yeah
Just like your burned out cigarette, you threw away my love - why did you do that, baby?
I wonder why, why you do these things to me

Oh, I'm worried
Lord, I'll find out anyway
Sure going to find myself a girl someday
Till then I'm worried
Yeah, I just can't seem to find my way

Yeah, I'm a hard working man, when did I ever do you wrong?
Yeah, I get all my money, baby, yeah, yeah I bring it all home, yeah, I'm telling the truth
Yeah, all right, sweet things, the sweet things, Lord, that you promised me, well

I'm worried about you, yeah
Tell you something now, I'm worried about you, yeah
I'm worried about you, child
I'm worried about you, woman, ah yeah - going to keep on telling you something now
I'm worried about you, yeah, come on, yeah
I'm worried about you, yeah

Yeah, I'm worried
Lord, I'll find out anyway
Sure as Hell burns, I'm going to find that girl someday
Oh I'm worried
Lord, I just can't seem to find my way
