Lyrics
In the beginning
You really loved me, oh
I was too blind
I could not see, now

But now that you left me
Ooh, how I cried out, I keep crying
You don't miss your water
'Till your well runs dry

I kept you crying
Sad and blue, oh my, oh
I was a playboy
I just wouldn't be true

But now that you left me
Good lord, how I cried, I keep crying, I keep crying
Ooh, I didn't miss my water
No I never missed my water
'Till my well were run dry

I sit here and wonder
How in the world this could be, my, oh my
I never thought, oh, I never thought
You'd ever leave me

But now that you left me
Good lord, good lord, how I cried
You don't miss your water, you don't miss your water
'Till your well runs dry

Ooh, you don't miss your water, oh, you don't miss your water
'Till your well runs dry
I miss my water
I keep missing my water
I keep missing my water
And I want my water
I need my water
I love my water
And I want my water
And I'm little thirsty, now
And I'm little thirsty, now
I want my water
I keep wanting my water
