Listen to the song and complete the lyrics


Now that I've lost everything to you
You say you want to start something new
And it's breaking my heart you're
Baby, I'm grieving

But if you want to leave, take good care
Hope you have nice things to wear
But then a lot of nice things turn bad out there

Oh baby baby it's a wild world
It's hard to just upon a smile
Oh baby baby it's a wild world
I'll always remember you like a child, girl

You know I've seen a lot of what the world can do
And it's my heart in two
'Cause I never want to see you sad girl
Don't be a bad girl

But if you want to leave take good care
Hope you make nice friends out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad and beware
Beware

Oh baby baby it's a wild world
It's hard to just upon a smile
Oh baby baby it's a wild world
And I'll always remember you like a child, girl

Baby I love you
But if you want to leave take good care
Hope you make nice friends out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad and beware
Beware

Oh baby baby it's a wild world
It's hard to just upon a smile
Oh baby baby it's a wild world
And I'll always remember you like a child, girl [x2]
