BREAK MY MIND
The Box Tops


Baby, oh, baby
Tell the man at the ticket stand
That you've changed your mind
Let me run on out and tell the cab
To keep his meter flying
'Cause if you say goodbye to me, babe
You're gonna break my mind

Break my mind, break my mind
No, I just can't stand to hear them big jet engines whine
Break my mind, break my mind
If you leave you're gonna leave a babbling' fool behind

Baby, oh, baby
Let me take your suitcase
Off the scales in time
Tell the man that you've suddenly developed
A thing about flyin'
'Cause if you say goodbye to me, babe
You know you're gonna break my mind
