Songwriters: Yusuf Islam

Now that I’ve lost everything to you

You say you want to start something new

And it’s breaking my heart you’re 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 it’s a wild world

It’s hard to get by 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 breaking 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 a lot of 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 get by 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 a lot of 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 get by just upon a smile

Oh baby baby it’s a wild world

And I’ll always remember you like a child, girl

Oh baby baby it’s a wild world

And it’s hard to get by just upon a smile

Oh baby baby it’s a wild world

And I’ll always remember you like a child, girl
