I know baby, what you're trying to do
You can't love me 'n my buddy, too
Oh babe, my babe, oh baby

If I had-a known like I know now
I wouldn't-a been tied up with ya, no how
Oh babe, my babe, oh baby

It's funny, oh my honey
How we had to start
I wasn't thinkin' but you were thinkin'
How to break my heart

The way seem hard
But I guess it's fair
I had a good home
And I wouldn't stay there
Oh babe, oh babe, my babe

'Yes, swing now'

(instrumental)

'i hear ya Mr. Piano player'
'Ha-ha, dog'
'Yeah'

'That's it'
'I'm gon' do it again for ya, ev'rybody'

'ha-ha'

'If you lose your head, you know
What goes with it finally'

'Look at that sax man'
Ha-haa!

Yes!

Uh-huh

I know baby, what you tryin' t'do
You can't love me 'n my buddy, too
Oh babe, Oh babe, my baby

If I had-a known like I know, now
I wouldn't have been tied up with ya, no how
Oh babe, Oh babe, my baby

It's funny, oh m'honey
How we had to start
I wasn't thinkin', you was thinkin'
How to break my heart

The way seem hard
But I guess it's fair
I had a good home
And I wouldn't stay there
Oh babe, Oh baby, oh babe

'Yeah, swing it now'

'Uh-huh'

Ah-yeah-yes

(sax)

Oh, you's goin' take us low
A long time in Georgia, somewhere'

'Yas-yas'

'Ah-ha, yas-yas'

(trumpet)

'Mellow fellow, like you wanna go dance'
'Ha-ha'

Oh, the way seem hard
But I guess it's fair
I had a good home
And wouldn't stay there
Oh babe, Oh baby
Oh babe, oh babe, yeah.
