Sonny James - Bright Lights, Big City lyrics

 

Bright light, big city, gone to my baby's head

Whoa, bright light, an'big city, gone to my baby's head

I tried to tell the woman, but she don't believe a word I said

It's all right, pretty baby, (gonna) need my help someday

Whoa, it's all right, pretty baby, gonna need my help someday

Ya' gonna wish you had a-listened, to some a-those things I said

Go ahead, pretty baby, a-honey, knock yourself out

Oh go ahead, pretty baby, honey, knock yourself out

I still love ya baby, 'cause you don't know what it's all about

Bright light, a big city, they went to my baby's head

Oh, the bright light, the big city, they went to my baby's head

I hope you remember, a-some of those things I said
