Words and Music by Willie Cobbs
Copyright 1962, 1990 Frederick Music Company and Katrina Music
You don't love me, pretty baby,
You don't love me, yes I know.
You don't love me, pretty baby
You don't love me, yes I know.
Well if you leave me, pretty baby
Don't you know you're gonna hurt me so.
Well I'm gonna tell my mother,
I'm gonna talk to my father too.
Well I'm gonna tell my sweet mother,
I'll have a word with my father too.
Well I'm gonna tell everybody,
What those young girls will do to you.
Goodbye now, pretty baby,
If I don't see you no more.
Lord, goodbye now, pretty baby,
If I never see you no more.
Well if you think I'll be your fool, Lord,
You better be on your merry way.
