I wake up every mornin' Lord and what do I see
I got a fool in my mirror and he's lyin' to me
He says aw man she's comin' back
You just hide and watch
That fool in my mirror singin' the same ol' song
But it still don't change the fact that my baby is gone

I got wrinkles 'round my eyes, I got gray in my hair
I'm puttin' on a little bit of weight but I don't seem to care
Fool say hey slick you lookin' good
Lie Lie Lie
That fool in my mirror singin' the same old song
But it still don't change the fact that my baby is gone

I just figured out what she meant when she sid
She was not comin' back so why don't I drop dead

I can't live with him I can't live without him
I don't believe a word he says but I don't dare doubt him
He says aw man she just went off to get a loaf of bread
Don't worry
Say you losin' a litle bit of weight aren't you
Lyin' son a *****
