Lyrics

Hhhmmmm, hhhmmmm, Mmmmmmmhhhmmmmm... I was raised an only child, My folks died when I was four. They were trapped in a fire, Way up on the fourteenth floor.

Well, my lovin` Granny raised me, `Til I reached the age of ten, But the good Lord took her too, And left my dog Jeff, my only friend. Oh, baby! Seem like the odds are against me, Nothin` works out right for me. Whooooooooooooo! I`ve lost everything I`ve ever loved; Honey, honey, now I`m losin` you, baby. I`ve lost everything I`ve ever loved; Honey, honey, now I`m losin` you. Oooooohhhhh, baby!! So, all my love I gave to Jeff, `Cause he was all I had right then, But the wheels of an automobile Brought his life to a tragic end. From an orphan home to college, Now I found true love in you; I felt sure we would marry, But your folks did not approve. Oh, baby! Seem like the odds are against me, Nothin` works out right for me. Whoooooooooooo... I`ve lost everything I`ve ever loved, And now, and now I`m losin` you. Oh! I`ve lost every thing I`ve ever loved, baby! Honey, honey, now I`m losin` you. Whooooooooooo... Oh baby, You accepted their decision, Without any type of defense. They said if we wait a few more years, That would make a little more sense. So we waited three or four, Every day we kept in touch; But when we came face to face, You didn`t love me quite as much! Oh, baby! Seem like the odds are against me, Nothin` works out right for me. Whooooo-hooooo! I`ve lost every, every thing I`ve ever loved; Baby, baby, baby, now I`m losin` you. I`ve lost everything, honey, I`ve ever loved; Whoooooooooooooooooo! Whoooooooooooooooooo! Now, I`m losin` you I`ve lost every, every, every thing baby I`ve ever, ever loved, Honey now, I`m lose, I`m a-lose, I`m a-losin` you. I lost my dog, Jeff Awwww, I lost Granny too, Honey, look like now I`m losin` you....
