  • My tears are fallin'
    'Cause you've taken her away
    And though it really hurts me so
    There's something that I've gotta say

    Take good care of my baby
    Please don't ever make her blue
    Just tell her that you love her
    Make sure you're thinking of her
    In everything you say and do

    Aww, take good care of my baby
    Now don't you ever make her cry
    Just let your love surround her
    Paint a rainbow all around her
    Don't let her see a cloudy sky
    Once upon a time that little girl was mine
    If I'd been true, I know she'd never be with you

    So, take good care of my baby
    Be just as kind as you can be
    And if you should discover
    That you don't really love her
    Just send my baby back home to me

    Well, take good care of my baby
    Be just as kind as you can be
    And if you should discover
    That you don't really love her
    Just send my baby back home to me

    Aww, take good care of my baby
    Well, take good care of my baby
    Just, take good care of my baby Writer/s: CAROLE KING, GERRY GOFFIN
