I stood outside like a fool
In the night air with you
And with a face much like a prong
Or electric chair I had on

I listened with ears that didn't
Make no mistake this time

When they say they try to warn ya
Lord, they just try to convince
Left my love in California
Baby, I ain't seen it since

When you said your word to me
I said "Thank you", now I see
Now I really understand
Just what's a woman and what's a man

You now you can't be true
Sometimes when it hurts you too

When they say they try to warn ya
Lord, they just try to convince
Left my love in California
Baby, I ain't seen it since

When I said I'd see you round
You said, baby, oh, you said "Wow"
Ain't I dramatic? Well, yeah, you bet
Because I ain't seen you yet

So when you see me, say hello
Say it long, say it slow
Say it like, "Hello"
Maybe your surprise will show

Yes, I hope you is surprised
When I just walk right on by

When they say they try to warn ya
Lord, they just try to convince
Left my love in California
Baby, I ain't seen it since
