Lyrics to Wild World

Now that I've Lost Everything to you
You Say You want to start something new
And it's breaking my heart your leaving
Baby I'm grieving 
But if you want to leave take good care
Hope you have a lot of nice things to wear
But then a lot of nice things turn bad out there

Oh baby, Baby its a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh baby, Baby its 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 breaking my hart in two
Because 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 a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad and beware

Oh baby, Baby its a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh baby, Baby its a wild world
I'll Always remember you like a child girl

Oh baby, Baby its a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh baby, Baby its a wild world
I'll Always remember you like a child girl
