"Baby's Coming Back" as written by and Andy Sturmer....
I knew that when I saw
That my life would soon move over from the fast lane
Gone would be the days
Of all by drinkin' and my carrying on

But when I settled down, the party king uncrowned
This stubborn memory hadn't faded
Too many dumb mistakes and all the grief it makes
Left nothing else to be debated

And if you say that you understand then you're lyin'
But if you figure that I'm alright now I can't deny it

Baby's coming back
Baby's coming back
So I'm on my best behavior

I can't take it anymore
I just woke up on the floor today, yeah yeah
I've long run out of my last chances but she's on her way

If I had a dollar for every single time I fought her
I'd buy a handgun
But that couldn't shoot away
The bull's eye that she made on my heart

And if I sound like a beaten man well I guess so
But on her way is the sweetest prize and I can't let go

Baby's coming back
Baby's coming back
So I'm on my best behavior

I can't take it anymore
I just woke up on the floor today, yeah yeah
I've long run out of my last chances but she's on her way

What I told her on the telephone was that I'd been so bad
I wouldn't blame her if she mowed down these wild oats I'd sown
But when she said she'd give me one more chance
I said knock three times when you arrive

Baby's coming back
Baby's coming back
So I'm on my best behavior

I can't take it anymore
I just woke up on the floor today, yeah yeah

Baby's coming back, my darling
Baby's coming back, the feeling
I've long run out of my last chances but she's on her way

    General CommentThats a funny song. He has lived his life care-free and partying all the time. Now he hooked up with a chick and she has set him straight and he was forced to clean up. But then she went on a trip and he re-lapsed into his old drinking and partying days. But now she is coming back so he has to clean up again real quick!
