Lyrics
Baby I been feelin' lonely
I been missin' your sweet touch
Things ain't been goin' so well these days
Guess I'm down on my luck
But you don't bring me flowers
And you don't send me no sweet cards
You just call me on the phone complaining
That your day's been too damn hard
Oh & baby you can make a lady Feel mighty old
Oh yeah baby you can make a lady feel Mighty old

Babe I love to cook ya dinner and it's great
When we make love
And when I'm up here singing, honey, well...
It's you I'm thinkin' of
But this woman needs some sweet talk oh
She needs that candlelight
Oh, but you don't make no time for that
And I'm alone again tonight
Other people want your lady
Better treat her right
Other people want your lady
Better treat her right

I ain't asking for restaurants
I ain't asking for diamond rings
Ya know what I been asking for
Are some very simple things
But then when I told you, ya turned it around
You got mad & sad said I came down too hard
Ya said I blew it all outa proportion
So I said sorry, guess I went too far...
It's just that...

Baby, you been makin' a lady feel mighty old
Baby your lady loves ya with her heart & soul
(Oh yes she does)
But baby you been makin' this lady feel Mighty old
