    (Ho-ome)
    (Crawl home)

    You gonna be sorry that you left me alone
    (You're going to be sorry)
    Packed your bags and now you gone
    (You're going to be sorry)
    Tried ev'rything to get along with you
    (You're going to be sorry)
    I tried ev'ry little thing I knew how to do
    (You're going to be sorry)
    You don't love me, don't love me no mo'
    Was that the reason why you wanna go-ooh
    Back home?
    (Go-ooh) back home

    Told you baby that I will roam
    (You're going to be sorry)
    But all you could say was
    You wanted to go home
    (You're going to be sorry)
    You know baby that I love you so
    (You're going to be sorry)
    Ain't no way that I can let you go
    (You're going to be sorry)
    You don't love me, that I know
    A-that's the reason why you wanna
    Go back ho-oome (back home)
    Yea-ah! (go back crawlin')
    (Crawl, back home)

    * <#1 chorus vocalist>
    Tell her!
    Drive off in yo' droptop
    She's bout to pack up, your trunk, now
    She's going to pack all, your clothes up
    You better lock up, your droptop

    You got to walk back, to yo' bus stop
    She got the droptop, you got a bus stop
    You got to lock up, your droptop
    She's packin' her trunk, in your droptop

    Give up, you messed up, she got the droptop
    Give up, you messed up, you let it go, so
    You pack the trunks up, she's at a bus stop
    You pack the trunks up, she got her droptop

    * <#2 chorus vocalist>

    Tell her!
    My own fault, you stole my droptop
    You bout to drop by, to my bus stop
    You bout to drive by, to my bus stop
    You bout to walk back, to the bus stop

    You got to walk back to the bus stop
    You got to walk back to the bus stop
    Too bad you walked out, to the bus stop
    Too bad you walked out, with the droptop

    You bet you messed up, you better come back
    You got to walk back, to that bus stop
    She packed your trunks up, she's so fucked up
    She packed your trunks up, she's so fucked up


    *<#3 chorus vocalist>

    Tell her!
    You're fucked, so fucked up
    You bout to fuck up, she's so fucked up
    You going to fuck up, she's so fucked up
    You bout to fuck up, with my droptop

    You got to walk out, cause you're fucked up
    You got to walk now, cause you fucked up
    You got to walk out, cause you're fucked up
    You bout to mess up, cause you're fucked up

    Too bad you messed up, cause you're fucked up
    You got the the droptop, cause you're fucked up
    Too bad your luck's up, with my droptop
    Too bad your luck's up, she's so fucked up

    Took ya downtown just the other day
    (You're going to be sorry)
    People begin to crowd around and say
    'You're going to be sorry'
    You don't love me, love me, no mo'
    (You're going to be sorry)
    That the reason why you wanna go
    (You're going to be sorry)
    You don't love me, love me no mo'
    But 'at a reason why you wanna go
    Back ho-ome, back home

    Yeah, yeah, yeah!

    (Craa-awl) back home

    (Too-bad-you-fucked-up, she-fucked-up-now)
    (Too-bad-you-walked-off, you-re so-fucked-up).

    *Three different lines sung for each line of the chorus.
    by three vocalist or dubbed. These lines are practically
    disguised by the instruments and the shoo-bop do-wop
    sounds, yet amazingly audible with headphone listening.
    Great beat, of course by the master, Mr. Bo Diddley!
