Since Iíve been gone you had your number changed
But my love for you, girl, still remains the same
Now Iíve been loving you
And youíve been loving me
So long
Baby, whatís wrong
So I beg you

Baby, baby, baby
Please let me have your number, yeah
Baby, baby, baby
Please let me have your number, yeah

Iím sorry you couldnít call me when you got home
But other fellows kept on calliní while you were gone
See, I had the number changed
But Iím not acting strange
Welcome home
Nothingís wrong
So Iím sayin'

Baby, baby, baby
You can have my private number
Baby, baby, baby
You can have my private number (Oh, thank you)

Ooh...ooh...ooh...
Ooh...ooh...ooh...

Baby, baby, baby
You can have my private number, baby
Baby, baby, baby
For giviní me your private number, baby {You can have it}
Thank you, baby {You can have it}

Baby, baby, baby
Thank you, baby {Any time you want it}
Thank you, baby {You can have my private number}
