Don’t bye bye baby me
Maurice McCall - 1959

Well, honey-honey, please don’t go.
Don’t you know I love you so?
How can our love grow
if you bye-bye-baby me.

Well, honey-honey, say you’ll stay.
Please don’t ever go away.
Each night I drag the day
that you bye-bye-baby me.

I gotta rattle my bones
’cause I’m a rollin’ stone.
I’m always movin’ around.
As the weeks go by, I feel like I
oughta get out of this town.

Well, my baby packs my suitcase
and comes down to the train.
With a tear in her eye she breathes a sigh
and I can hear my baby say.

Well, she said, honey-honey, please don’t go.
Don’t you know I love you so?
How can our love grow
if you bye-bye-baby me.

Well, honey-honey, say you’ll stay.
Please don’t ever go away.
Each night I drag the day
that you bye-bye-baby me.

Well, sittin’ on that choo-choo train
sing a little rockin’ rhyme.
I visualize my baby,
I can almost hear her cry.

I try hard not to listen, turn my head away.
But each chug-chug of the choo-choo train
I can hear my baby say.

Well, she said a-honey-honey please don’t go.
Honey, I love you so.
How can our love grow
if you bye-bye-baby me.

Well, honey-honey, say you’ll stay.
Please don’t ever go away.
Each night I drag the day
that you bye-bye-baby me.
