BYE BYE BABY

Lyrics

This is not a love song
Bye bye baby

I keep on waiting, anticipating
But I can't wait forever
You say you love me
You're thinking of me
But we're never together

Bye bye baby bye bye
It's your turn to cry
That's why we have to say goodbye
So say goodbye

Bye bye baby bye bye
It's your turn to cry
This time we have to say goodbye
So say goodbye

You had your chances
All your romances
And now I just don't want you
I know I love you because I hate you
And now I'd rather haunt you

Bye bye baby bye bye
It's your turn to cry
That's why we have to say goodbye
So say goodbye

Bye bye baby bye bye
It's your turn to cry
That's why we have to say goodbye
So say goodbye

You're so beautiful
What makes you feel exciting?
What wakes you up inside?
Does it make you feel good to see me cry?
I think it does
That's why it's time to say bye bye

Bye bye baby bye bye
It's your turn to cry
That's why we have to say goodbye
So say goodbye

Bye bye baby bye bye
It's your turn to cry
That's why we have to say goodbye
So say goodbye

I don't wanna keep the bright flame
Of your ego going
So I'll just stop blowin' in the wind
To love you is a sin
Adios

Uh this is not a love song

I'd like to hurt you

What excites you?
What turns you on?
What makes you feel good?
Does it make you feel good to see me cry?
I think it does
That's why it's time to say goodbye
Bye bye

The first time
And the last time
You can forget about it baby
Forget the rules
Forget the fools
Forget your fears
Forget my tears
You can forget about it baby
Bye bye baby bye bye
You can forget about it baby
'Cause it's the first time
And the last time
You'll ever see me cry

You fucked it up

Single

Bye Bye Baby, the singleThis sixth and last single from Erotica wasn't released in the US or the UK, only in Japan, Australia and some European countries in the end of 1993. It reached #15 in both Japan and Australia.

Video / Tour

Bye Bye Baby @ Girlie ShowBecause the single wasn't a worldwide release, there was no separate video made for it. Instead director Mark Miceli recorded the live performance of Bye Bye Baby at the Girlie Show in Australia. The performance was all about Cabaret-style gender-bending, as Madonna, Niki and Donna appeared on stage in black suits and top hats, each seducing their pinup girl with a great chair choreography. At the end of the song, the 'boys' explicitly dismissed their women. Madonna also performed Bye Bye Baby on the VMA 1993 as a teaser for her then-upcoming tour.
