Baby-baby-baby, baby-babe, baby-baybay
Baby-baby-baby, baby-babe, baby-baybay
Lord, I don't know why my baby treat me this-a way

I ain't never seen my baby look so doggone good before
I ain't never seen my baby look so doggone good before
'Til the day she says, "Papa, I b'lieve it's time for me to go."

I'm going to grab me a streetcar, ride it until it stops
I'm going to grab me a streetcar, ride it until it stops
Lord, it's gettin' cold outside, gonna keep my baby from walkin' on these blocks

SOLO

Lord, baby, don't it never see?
There's only three places that I'm never seen
That is Texas and California and the city you call New Orleans

Mama, don't you know you can't lose?
Oh Jessie, baby, don't you know you can't lose?
Because you're leaving your papa with the Blues Monday Morning Blues
