about

This song is dedicated to the memory of the best cat that I have ever known, Mr. Bojangles.

lyrics

Why you gotta come around lookin' all sad
like you finally figured out you really had it made
looking like you ate eatin' nothin' in days
and if I'd just let you in you'd make it up for all your sorry ways
But it isn't that simple, boy you know it's true
I kinda lost my mind on the day that I lost you
But it isn't that simple, boy you know it's true
I kinda lost my mind on the day that I lost you
Never stopped looking for you wanderin' around
wearing holes in my boots, up and down this town
I left the door open hopin' you'd come back
say "sorry for leaving you hangin' on like that"
But it isn't that simple, boy you know it's true
I kinda lost my mind on the day that I lost you
But it isn't that simple, boy you know it's true
I kinda lost my mind on the day that I lost you
Baby why'd you come back?
Maybe I don't want you back.
Baby won't you come back to me?
Baby why'd you come back?
Maybe I don't want you back.
Baby won't you come back to me?
Why you gotta come around lookin' all sad
I guess you finally figured out you really had it made
you're such a cool cat surprising me like that
you know I'll never turn you out, never let you be a stray
But it isn't that simple, boy you know it's true
I kinda lost my mind on the day that I lost you
No it isn't that simple, boy you know it's true
I kinda lost my mind on the day that I lost you
Baby why'd you come back?
Maybe I don't want you back.
Baby won't you come back to me?
Baby why'd you come back?
Maybe I don't want you back.
Baby won't you come back to me?
