I must be on the slow boat to China
Baby why can’t you give me what I need
I said I must be on the slow boat to China
Lord why can’t you give me what I need
Don’t you think I know the difference
Between necessity and greed

Baby you are the light of my life
How could you make me so sad
Baby you are the light of my life
How could you make me so sad
What happened to all of what we were together
And the beautiful life, that we had

You know all last night I looked for you
All I did was wander, All I did was wander
Through the streets
all last night I looked for you
All I did was wander
Through the streets
Now I feel like I can’t get out the bed
I can’t get out the bed
Seem like all I wanna do is sleep

How can my love for you be so alive
How can your love for me be so far away
How can my love for you be so alive
How can your love for me be so far away
How can all the lovely words you said to me baby
Be something that you’d betray

Has anybody seen my baby
She told me that she loved me
And that she would be there
Has anybody seen my baby
My baby told me my baby told me
that she would be there
I know that she would never leave me
I know she wont hurt me
I know that she cares

I know you can’t find me
Do you think I got lost in this here town
I know you can’t find me
Do you think I got lost in this here town
I’m fixin to leave this place
And I’ll have to put you down

Baby you know I love you, yes I do
But I’m gonna have to let you go
Baby you know I love you, you know I love you
But I gotta let you go
I’m just tryin to find how to tell you
But I’ll always love you so

Baby please tell me what happened
Baby please don’t break my heart
Baby please tell me what happened
Please don’t break my heart

Sometimes a tree gets struck by lightning
Sometimes it gets old and falls apart
Oh yeah
