[Verse 1]
Sister Mary said that she heard your name
The auntie from the store said that she saw you here
I was walking down the streets
I was buying some things
And people asking me
"Where is your man?"
I said I don't know
He's gone on a quest
He went over the ocean
Thought it was best
Since I've been waiting
I've been patient
I've been praying
Thinking "baby… come back to me"
‘Cause everybody's asking me
Where you have been

[Chorus]
He said
Tobo Darling
I don't mind if you're not here
But you have to come around
Once in a while
Tobo Darling
I don't mind if you're not here
But you have to come around
Once in a while

[Verse 2]
The neighbors keep asking where you are
I said you went on a boat
You went very far
Said you have to fight this battle on your own
And here I am
Alone in our home
The basket is empty
‘Cause I'm home alone
I don't wanna eat
I don't wanna sleep
And people asking me
Where you have been
I'm trying to be cautious
Baby, baby…
Where have you been?
Everybody's asking me
"Where is your man?"

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Baby
Come back to me
‘Cause everybody's asking me
Where you have been

[Outro]
Tobo Darling
I never mind if you're not here, yeah yeah
But you have to come around, show your face
Once in a while
