When Was The Last Time
Lyrics
When was the last time you made a call?
When was the last time we talked at all?
When was the last time you treated me right?
When was the last time I didn't sleep alone at night?
....When was the last time?
....When was the last time?

You made a promise to me baby, better make amends.
When was the last time my darlin', you had friend?

When was the last time we shared a smile?
I tell ya baby, it's been a while.
I didn't ask you to leave me be
When was the last time I felt your lovin' arms around me?
....When was the last time?
....When was the last time?

You know I'm tryin' not to quit you, but I need a sign.
When was the last time honey you said you were mine?

Instrumental

C'mon now baby, give me half a chance.
I promise honey; give you hot romance.
My lovin's sweeter than the honey bee's.
When was the last time satisfaction brought you to your knees?
....When was the last time?
.....When was the last time?

I'll fill you up with lovin' Baby, like you've never seen.
When was that last time pretty momma had a man like me?

Instrumental

Your karma's comin' at you baby, now the piper calls.
When was the last time ya paid your dues? I'm gone!
