I could sleep on a clothes line,
As easy as pie.
I can't keep my eyes open,
No matter how I try.
I gotta sit down,
I can't stay on my feet.
I been up all night,
I been walkin' the street.
Oh yeah...

Looking for my baby,
But everywhere I've gone.
Tell me I just missed her,
It's gone on too long.

Well, I'd go up on a mountain,
And I'd fight a wild cat.
Walk over Niagara,
And all the way back.
Get lost in the jungle,
And I'd live up a tree.

That's what I would want to do,
If you would stay with me.
Oh yeah...

Looking for you baby,
Gone from pillar to post.
Wverywhere I'd just missed you baby,
By a minute at the most.

Well I'm looking for you baby,
In the cafe's and the bar.
All the places is glad to know you,
And they say you cannot go too far.
But you've gone far enough baby,
If I find out I've done nothing wrong.
Don't have to ask who's the fool,
I won't be the one.
Owwwww....... Not a loser...

Well, I would sleep on the tail-plane,
Of a Jumbo Jet.
Walk over the Ocean
And I'd never once get wet.
Go skating on an iceberg,
And that's what I would once do.
Lay it down a dozen times,
Just to hear you say,
"I Love You".

Looking for you baby,
But everwhere I go.
Tell me I just missed you baby,
By a minute at the most.

Well, I could,
Sleep on a clothes line,
As easy as pie.
I can't keep my eyes open,
No matter how I try.
I gotta sit down,
I can't stay on my feet.
I been up all night,
I been walkin' the street.
Yeah...

Looking for you baby,
Everwhere I go.
Tell me I just missed you baby,
You know, it's gone on too long.
Yeah..
Gone too long baby.
Yeah..
