about

This is a sequel to "Baby, It's You" written by Burt Bacharach, Luther Dixon and Hal David.

"Baby, It's You" was a charting hit for The Shirelles, The Beatles, and a band called Smith. It was a #8 hit for the Shirelles in 1962:

This sequel is inspired most heavily by The Shirelles' version.

lyrics

I should have listened to what they said
They called you a cheat
And don't I know it now
It caught up with you somehow

I should have noticed; I should have cared
When you look at me
It's like there's no one there
And now I'm well aware

You never quit your lying
But I'm done sitting here alone and crying over you
Baby, we're through

The gauzy sunset, the fever dream
Are long since past
And it's just worn on me
There's nothing more to see

And every promise and pretty word
Has hardened here
And made itself absurd
Before it's even heard

I don't care what you say
I'm still leaving you any old way
'Cause it's true
Baby, we're through
Baby, we're through

And it is the way you smile
That gives you away
And it is the way you kiss -
Like someone afraid
I'm on to you
Baby, we're through

You never quit your lying
But I'm done sitting here alone and crying over you
Baby, we're through
Baby, we're through
Baby, we're through

I'm leaving you alone
And don't bother coming back home
