Lyrics

Come back, baby, come back to me
I’ll be in my sundress watching TV
I been missin’ you, have you been missin’ me?
Thinkin’ ‘bout your lovin’, babe
Lovin’, sweet, sweet

Come back, sug-ey, come back to me
Fix me up a mixed drink, Bacardi
I’ll put on your favorite dress and we’ll party
Take a drive, kiss, kiss by the sea

You don’t have to say
That I’m the girl that got away

I've been drinkin' Jack and Coke a lot
Suckin' on my lollipops
Listenin' to my hard rock mu-mu-mu-music
Thinkin' 'bout you quite a lot
Smokin’ all my cigarettes
Missin’ what we used to got, you, you, you, you kid

Won’t you come home to me now, babe?
I been holdin’ it down but I’m losin’ my ground
Won’t you come home to me now, babe?
I’m a strong baby doll, but I want you around

Come back, honey, don’t be so mean
Come back to your trailer, come see your queen
You been missin’ out, p-peaches and cream
Dreamin’ ‘bout your dolly, sweet
Dolly, dream, dream

You bad, baby, dumb as can be
Who can you find bad, bad, badder than me?
I been missin’ you, you been missin’ me
Thinkin’ ‘bout your sugar sweet c-candy

You don’t have to say
That I’m the girl that got away

I've been drinkin' Jack and Coke a lot
Suckin' on my lollipops
Listenin' to my hard rock mu-mu-mu-music
Thinkin' 'bout you quite a lot
Smokin’ all my cigarettes
Missin’ what we used to got, you, you, you, you kid

Won’t you come home to me now, babe?
I been holdin’ it down but I’m losin’ my ground
Won’t you come home to me now, babe?
I’m a strong baby doll, but I want you around

Come on over, pretty baby
What? You make your mommy crazy
Come on over, pretty baby
What? You make your mommy crazy

I want my cake and I wanna eat it too
I wanna be friends and be in love with you
Go out on weekends, party it up, boo,
Like the way it was, a summer of love

I've been drinkin' Jack and Coke a lot
Suckin' on my lollipops
Listenin' to my hard rock mu-mu-mu-music
Thinkin' 'bout you quite a lot
Smokin’ all my cigarettes
Missin’ what we used to got, you, you, you, you kid

Won’t you come home to me now, babe?
I been holdin’ it down but I’m losin’ my ground
Won’t you come home to me now, babe?
I’m a strong baby doll, but I want you around
