Well, I cried my eyes out the night you left And I begged for a sinner's reprieve And I'll never forget the shame that I felt When you loosened your grip on my sleeve You said, "Baby, you didn't do anything wrong, There's just something that I've gotta see." And I said, "I'll never forgive you for this Not even if you say please." I wanna hear you say please, baby, please, baby, I'm stupid, I was wrong And you knew it all along So get down on your knees, baby Swallow up your pride, You know, it wouldn't hurt to cry, And say Please. After you left, you know it took me a while To get myself off the ground It was maybe a month before they got me to smile Baby, I've never been so down I know you think I'm just being mean And you're right, 'cause I'm still mad at you So if you want back in my graces tonight There's one thing you gotta do I wanna hear you say ... Please, baby, please, baby, I'm stupid, I was wrong And you knew it all along So get down on your knees, baby Swallow up your pride, You know, it wouldn't hurt to cry, And say Please. You must have thought I was clay in your hands That I needed the strength of your two legs to stand Well, baby, guess what, I'm standing just fine It turns out I've got a little steel in my spine And I hope you gotta box with a pretty bow on top Give me all the shiny things, your apologies and rings Let me make this very clear, I gotta see you shed a tear Baby, I can wait all night, so it you wanna make this right, Say please.
