I know you wanna leave me

But I refuse to let you go

If I have to beg and plead for your sympathy

I don’t mind ’cause you mean that much to me

 

[Chorus]

Ain’t too proud to beg, sweet darlin’

Please don’t leave me girl, don’t you go

Ain’t to proud to plead, baby, baby

Please don’t leave me, girl, don’t you go

 

[Verse 2]

Now I heard a cryin’ man is half a man

With no sense of pride

But if I have to cry to keep you, I don’t mind weepin’

If it’ll keep you by my side

 

[Chorus]

Ain’t too proud to beg, sweet darlin’

Please don’t leave me, girl, don’t you go

Ain’t to proud to plead, baby, baby

Please don’t leave me, girl, don’t you go

 

[Verse 3]

If I have to sleep on your doorstep all night and day

Just to keep you from walkin’ away

Let your friends laugh, even this I can stand

‘Cause I want to keep you any way I can

 

[Chorus]

Ain’t too proud to beg, sweet darlin’

Please don’t leave me, girl, don’t you go

Ain’t to proud to plead, baby, baby

Please don’t leave me, girl, don’t you go

 

[Verse 4]

Now I’ve got a love so deep in the pit of my heart

And each day it grows more and more

I’m not ashamed to come and plead to you, baby

If pleadin’ keeps you from walkin’ out of that door

 

[Chorus]

Ain’t too proud to beg, sweet darlin’

Please don’t leave (don’t leave) me, girl, don’t you go

Ain’t to proud to plead, baby, baby

Please don’t leave me, girl, don’t you go

 

[Outro]

Baby, baby, baby, (ooh, sweet darlin’)

Oh, no

Don’t leave me girl, no, no

If crying keeps you near

I don’t mind crying

Don’t leave me girl, oh, no

Oh, baby

Don’t leave me girl, no

Don’t ever leave me
