There goes my baby, there goes my only one.
I think she loves me, but she dont wanna let on.
Yeah, she likes to keep me guessin,
Shes got me on the fence with that little bit of mystery,
Shes a complex kid and shes always been so hard to figure out.
Yeah, she always likes to leave me with a shadow of a doubt.

Sometimes at night I wait around til she gets off.
She dont like workin, she says she hates her boss,
But shes got me askin questions, shes got me on the fence
With that little certain something, shes a complex kid,
And shes always been so hard to get around.
She always likes to leave me with a shadow of a doubt.

Just a shadow of a doubt, she says it keeps me runnin.
Im trying to figure out if shes leadin up to something
And when shes dreamin, sometimes she sings in french,
But in the morning, she dont remember it.

But shes got me thinking bout it,
Yeah, shes got me on the fence
With that little bit of mystery, shes a complex kid,
And shes always been so hard to live without.
Yeah, she always likes to leave me, with a shadow of a doubt.
