Lyrics

If you didn't want me you shouldn't have been born
That started all the trouble now the damage is done
I'm sayin' you never should have been born
Cause now you're the one for me

And if you didn't want me following you around
You never should have showed up around my town
You never should have come to town
Cause now you're the one for me

And it's too late cause now you're stuck with me
You better give up, it's me you choose
I say "Ha ha ha ha, baby it's me, you lose"
Oh it's to late cause now my mind is set
You better give up because I won't forget
That could now never be
Baby you're the one for me
Oh babe, oh honey
Darling it's too late now
Yeah, You're the one for me

If you didn't want me you shouldn't have been born
And we never should have met that morn
We never should have met
Cause now you're the one for me
And if you didn't want me to want you this way
You never should have seen my rock n roll band play
You never should have seen the lovers play
Cause now you're the one for me

And it's too late now you're stuck with me
Better give up, cause it's me you choose
I say "Ha ha ha ha, it's me, you lose"
Oh it's too late because now my mind's all set
Give up because I won't forget
That could never never be
Baby you're the one for me
Oh baby, oh honey
Yeah oh, it's too late for you
Cause you're the one for me
You are the one for me
You're the one, you're the one
You're the one, it's too late
You're the one

Lyrics

If you didn't want me you shouldn't have been born

Oh it's too late now cause my mind is set
Which means that you can give up because I won't forget

Lyrics

[Ok, now, this is a true story
If you didn't want me, you shouldn't have been born
True story]

If you didn't want me you shouldn't have been born
That started all the trouble now the damage is done
I'm sayin' you never should have been born
Cause when I saw you I knew that
You're the one for me

And if you didn't want me to be always pestering you hanging around
You never should have showed up around my town [it's your fault]
You never should have come to town
Cause now you're the one for me

[Tell them what time it is]

And it's too late cause now you're stuck with me
You better give up, it's me you choose
I say "Ha ha ha ha, baby it's me, you lose"
Oh it's too late cause now my stubborn mind is set
You might as well give up because I'm not the type to forget
That could never never be
Now you're the one for me
Oh babe, [it's too late] oh honey
It's too late
You're the one for me

If you didn't want me you shouldn't have been born
And if you really wanted you never should have let me meet you that morn
We never should have met [if you didn't want this]
Cause now you're the one for me
And if you didn't want me to want you this way
You never should have come see my ancient rock n roll band play
You never should have come see the old modern lovers play
Cause now you're the one for me

It's too late now you're stuck with me
You might as well give up, [that's right] it's me you choose
I say "Ha ha ha ha, it's me, you lose" [???]
It's too late because now my mind's all set
You might as well give up because I won't forget
That could never never be
Baby you're the one for me

Oh baby, oh honey
You're the one for me
(It's too late)
You are the one for me
(It's too late)
You're the one,
(It's too late)
You're the one
(It's too late)
You're the one
(It's too late)
You're the one
