  • Doo, doo, doo, doo
    Doo, doo, doo, doo

    We had a quarrel
    A teenage quarrel
    Now I'm as blue as I know how to be
    I can't call you on the phone
    I can't even see you at your home

    So I'm sending you this present
    Just to prove that I'm telling the truth
    Dear, I believe you won't laugh when you receive
    This rose and a Baby Ruth

    (Doo, doo, doo, doo)
    (Doo, doo, doo, doo)
    (Doo, doo, doo, doo, ahh)

    I could have sent you an orchid of some kind
    But that's all I had in my jeans at the time

    But when we grow up
    Some day I'll show up
    Just to prove I was telling the truth
    I'll kiss you, too, then I'll hand to you
    This rose and a Baby Ruth

    (Doo, doo, doo, doo)
    (Doo, doo, doo, doo)
    (Doo, doo, doo, doo, ooh)
