Sun a-shining, there's plenty of life. . . a new day is dawning sunny and bright. But after I've been crying all night the sun is cold and the new day seems old. Since I lost my baby, since I lost my baby.
Birds are singing and the children are playing, there's plenty of work and the bosses are paying. Not a sad word should my young heart be saying, but fun is a bore and with money I'm poor. Since I lost my baby, since I lost my baby.
Next time I'll be kinder, won't you please help me find her? Someone just remind her 'bout this love she left behind her. 'Til I find her I'll be tryin' now, ev'ry day I'm more inclined to find her, inclined to find her, inclined to find my baby. Been a-looking ev'rywhere, baby, I really, really care.
Oh, determination is fading fast. . . Inspiration is a thing of the past. . . Can't see my hope's gonna last. . . good things are bad and what's happy is sad. Since I lost my baby, since I lost my baby. I feel so bad, oo, I'll feel so sad, everything is a-wrong, I feel so bad, oo, I'll feel so sad, everything is a-wrong,
