  • Every evening, when all my day's work is through
    I call my baby, and ask him what shall we do
    I mention movies, but he don't seem to dig that
    And then he asks me, why don't I come to his flat
    And have some supper and let the evening pass by
    By playing records besides a groovy hi-fi
    I say yeh yeh, and that's what I say
    I say yeh yeh

    My baby loves me, she gets a feeling so fine
    And when she love me, she makes me know that she's mine
    And when she kisses, I feel the fire get hot
    She never misses, she gives it all that she's got
    And when she asks me if everything is okay
    I got my answer, the only thing I can say
    I say yeh yeh, that's what I say
    I say yeh yeh

    We'll play a melody and
    Turn the lights down low so that none can see
    We gotta do that, we gotta do that
    We gotta do that, we gotta do that
    And there'll be no one else alive
    In all the world 'cept you and me
    Yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh
    Yeh yeh, yeh yeh

    Pretty baby, I never knew such a thrill
    Just thought I'd tell you, because I'm trembling still
    But pretty baby, I want you all for my own
    I think I'm ready to leave those others alone
    Don't need to ask me if everything is OK
    I got my answer, the only thing I can say
    I say yeh yeh, that's what I say
    I say yeh yeh, that's what I say
    I say yeh yeh

    We'll play a melody and
    Turn the lights down low so that none can see
    We gotta do that, we gotta do that
    We gotta do that, we gotta do that
    And there'll be no one else alive
    In all the world 'cept you and me
    Yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh yeh, yeh yeh

    Oh pretty baby, I never knew such a thrill
    Just thought I'd tell you, because I'm trembling still
    But pretty baby, I want you all for my own
    I think I'm ready to leave those others alone
    Don't need to ask me if everything is okay
    I got my answer, the only thing I can say
    I say yeh yeh, that's what I say
    I say yeh yeh, that's what I say
    I say yeh yeh, that's what I say
    I say yeh yeh
    That's what I say, I say yeh yeh
    That's what I say, I say yeh yeh
    That's what I say, yeahWriter/s: Rodgers Lee Grant, Jon Hendricks, Pat Patrick

  • Daevid from Glendale, CaOh----i forgot to mention...the sax solo is the Best part!
  • Daevid from Glendale, CaI LOVE this song! it's got that great "beatnik" groove to it.
  • Bob from Southfield, MiWhen this song came out in 1965, I recall that his group was titled, "The Blue Flames".
  • Kevin from Syracuse, UtI heard Georgie Fame perform this in a small 18th Century theater in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, England, in 1987. It was a charity benefit concert and I had a front row seat. Most of the set was just Georgie Fame playing a well-worn Fender electric piano and singing. I will tell you, he put on a great show. He is an amazing musician.
  • Frank from Westminster, ScAny truth to the rumor that after this song, he changed his name to Georgie Obscurity?
