"Katy's Leaving Babylon" as written by and Richard Clapton....
I should have known that it would turn out bad
You ain't a girl to do things by half

I should have known that this crazy love
Would come swooping down and swallow us up
I guess I could have been like every other man
And not give a damn that women hurt so bad
Now I'm sitting here trying to make some peace within my mind
With the late movie flickering back and forth across my eyes

Oh, the nights are so long
And Katy's leaving Babylon
I should have known the girl was not that strong
And Katy's leaving Babylon

I didn't count on such a long, long trip
I took your love and never paid for it
It's too late now to think about a woman's pride
'Cause Katy's past thinking about suicide
All of a sudden you know, that axe comes down
Before you even think about a turnaround

Women need loving more than we can understand
But hey! don't get down about it
Just do the best that you can

Oh, the nights are so long
And Katy's leaving Babylon
I should have known the girl was not that strong
Now Katy's leaving Babylon
