Elmore James – Quarter Past Nine lyrics

I've got a baby, I don't know where she is
Yes, I've got a baby, but I don't know where she is
I'll get in my bed and sleep better,
Can't keep my poor self still
Oh, tell me baby, what you got on your mind
Ah, please tell me baby, what you got on your mind
Oh, I got to see you baby, you know I can't lose my time

The clock here this morning say a quarter past nine
I was sitting and rocking in the morning baby,
Until a quarter past nine
Well, when I find my other baby,
You know you done lost your time
