Have you heard the news
I lost my baby to another man
I got a bulletin of news
Late breaking story
that I don't understand
Should I call her up late
Should I ask her
how she really feels
Should I try to make a date
For a time when we can touch
And feel.
She' so on fire
She's my desire.
I've got the bad news beat
And my reception
is loud and clear
I've got a
man in the street
Telling me what
I don't want to hear
I've got an eye in the sky
Taking pictures that
I don't want to see
She's got a brand new guy
Looks like she's
never coming back
To me.
She' so on fire
She's my desire.
I've got an
eye in the sky
I've got a
man in the street
I've got
the bad news beat
I've got
the bad news beat
