Baby when we break up from a quarrel or a fight
I can't wait to have you back and hold you oh so tight
Tell me why, I want to know oh oh
Tell me why is it so oh oh
That the best part of breaking up is when you're making up
Best part of breaking up is when you're making up
But after breaking up, be sure you're making up with me
Everytime you leave, I get those teardrops in my eyes
But they seem to go away when you apologize
Tell me why, I want to know oh oh
Tell me why is it so oh oh
That the best part of breaking up is when you're making up
Best part of breaking up is when you're making up
But after breaking up, be sure you're making up with me
C'mon baby, c'mon baby
Don't say maybe
Well it makes no difference who was wrong
Just as long as I'll be with you
Baby I'll be lonely til you're back where you should be
But baby I belong to you and you belong to me
Tell me why, I want to know oh oh
Tell me why is it so oh oh
That the best part of breaking up is when you're making up
Best part of breaking up is when you're making up
But after breaking up, be sure you're making up with me
The best part of breaking up is when you know you're making up with me
C'mon baby, c'mon baby
Don't say maybe
