Sonny James – Since I Met You Baby Lyrics

Since I met you baby
My whole life has changed
Since I met you baby
My whole life has changed
And everybody tells me that I am not the same

I don’t need nobody
To tell my troubles to
I don’t need nobody
To tell my troubles to
‘Cause since I met you baby, all I need is you

Since I met you baby
I’m a happy man
Since I met you baby
I’m a happy man
I’m gonna try to please you in every way I can
