Baker, Anita - I Apologize Lyrics

Operator, get my baby on the line
'Cause jus the other night we had a horrible fight.
I admit that I, I was out of control,
But I still love my man with my body and soul.
When the road gets rough, we say things we should not say.
But I never meant to treat my baby that way.

I apologize (believe me I do) Oh believe me I do.
I apologize (honest and true) Oh honest and true.
Because I know I was wrong
And so I sing you this song.
And I'm tryna get through to make it up to you yeah.

Operator, it was like a bad dream.
Lord you should have heard the way he shouted
And the way that I screamed.
I regret it 'cause I was unfair.
I took it all out on him just because he was there.
When the road gets rough, we say things we should not say.
I never meant to treat my daddy that way.

I apologize (believe me I do) Oh believe me I do.
I apologize (honest and true) Oh honest and true.
Because I know I was wrong
And so I sing you this song.
And I'm tryna get through to make it up to you yeah.

I apologize, for I was unkind and I wish
That I could go back in time.
Erase the good-byes and rewrite my lines.
But, come rain or come shine,
I'm gonna do right this time.
I apologize.

I apologize, oh baby, I do.
Because I know I was wrong
So I sing you my, my, my song.
I apologize

I apologize
Because I know I was wrong
So I sing you this song
And I wanna get, gotta get,
Need to through to you, yeah.

Oh listen, oh baby
I'm talking to you right now
I'm talking to you
Oh yeah, I was wrong, baby
Now listen to me right now
Singing it to you right now...

    There are some basic ascriptions associated with those authorities and powers that I had sent you with that paperwork. One of them is 'No Whoring ourselves' to others each one the one. There is want, there is need, there is desire, there is interest, there is substantiate. There is good, there is bad, there is rich, there is poor, there is righteous, there is wicked. There is belief, there is faith, there is virtue, there is knowledge. There is agreement, there is disagreement, there is contending, there is intending, there is constituency.

  6. Gayland Strong

    I have statements. As those statements are approached, they are regarded at the time of approach and the Fair Witness Protection Act.

  7. Gayland Strong

    I stand repose. Even so, you are the one who has whored the hell out of my person. The 'winds' did that, and they should be no more.

  8. Gayland Strong

    To continue, that which is unusual is unusual, you might be most watchful of your adherent acclaim. I love you.

  9. Gayland Strong

    Besides that I ate all of that panty grizzle tortellini and that panty grizzle pattee. I can explain....Oh, wow!!!!

  10. Gayland Strong

    The fact of the matter is that I was not able to go straight thru, because of incidents, and such the likes of incidents. I am in well being, and I hope that you are also in well being. I love you. I hope to see you soon.

  11. Gayland Strong

    And So, since I was not able to go straight to a marriage, considering all things, I had had to put it all together in an unusual way. In fact, the paperwork you were beholding was the paperwork for our marriage, even so they were the artifacts associated with our marriage, like vows of consideration. So, we have been married for some time, if you might still have the paperwork and the notable authority and power thereof according to our marriage agreement. I hope to talk to you soon. I love you. I hope you get this note.

    MESSAGE TO THE LADIES: Out of all the years that I've been listening to music, I have heard PLENTY and PLENTY of songs of men apologizing to women, but the sad thing is this is the only song in the intire history of r&b where a woman FINALLY admits she was wrong and she apologized. LADIES! If you all can find another song where a woman's admitting her wrongs and apologizing to a man, I will GLADLY except that challenge. So with all that said. . . . . . . I SALUTE MS. ANITA BAKER. THANKS FOR DOING WHAT VERY SO MANY WOMEN REFUSE TO DO. WHICH IS SWALLOW THEIR PRIDE, GET RID OF THEIR EGO'S AND ARROGANCE&SIMPLY SAY "I WAS WRONG AND I APOLOGIZE".
