Be Fair With Me Baby

I’m helpless without you, baby

I’ve almost lost my man

Yes, helpless without you, baby

I’ve almost lost my man

I’m blue and confused

Since you left me behind

My friends all know it, baby

The tears, I cannot hide

My friends all know it, baby

The tears, I cannot hide

You’ve changed, you’re dispositioned

And throw my love aside

Be fair with me, baby

Our love can start anew

Please be fair with me, baby

Our love can start anew

I’m blue and helpless, baby

And I’m worried over you

Yes, I’m worried

I’ve got the helpless blues.

Songwriters: Darnell Ravon, Edward Mesner.
