Eileen Barton With The New Yorkers – If I Knew You Were Comin' I'd've Baked A Cake lyrics

Come in
Well, well, well, look who's here
I haven't seen you in many a year

If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake
Baked a cake, baked a cake
If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake
How'd-ya do, how'd-ya do, how'd-ya do?

Had you dropped me a letter, I'd a-hired a band
Grandest band in the land
Had you dropped me a letter, I'd a-hired a band
And spread the welcome mat for you

Oh, I don't know where you came from
'Cause I don't know where you've been
But it really doesn't matter, grab a chair and fill your platter
And dig, dig, dig right in

If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake
Hired a band, goodness sake
If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake
How'd-ya do, how'd-ya do, how'd-ya do?

If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake
Baked a cake, baked a cake
If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake
How'd-ya do, how'd-ya do, how'd-ya do?

Had you dropped me a letter I'd a-hired a band
Grandest band in the land
Had you dropped me a letter I'd a-hired a band
Spread the welcome mat for you

Oh, I don't know where you came from
'Cause I don't know where you've been
But it really doesn't matter, grab a chair and fill your platter
And dig, dig, dig right in

If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake
Hired a band, goodness sake
If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake
How'd-ya do, how'd-ya do, how'd-ya do?
How'd-ya do, how'd-ya do, how'd-ya do?
How'd-ya do?
