  • Oh oh, Claudette
    Oh oh, Claudette

    I got a brand new baby and I feel so good
    She loves me even better than I thought she would
    I'm on my way to her house an I'm plumb outta breath
    A-when I see her tonight I'm gonna squeeze her to death

    Claudette, pretty little babe, Claudette
    Never makes me wait, Claudette
    She's the greatest little girl that I've ever met
    I get the best lovin' that I'll ever get
    From Claudette, pretty little babe, Claudette
    Oh oh, Claudette

    Well, I'm a lucky man my baby treats me right
    She's gonna let me hug and kiss and hold her tight
    When the date is over and we're at her front door
    When I kiss her good night I'll holler more more more

    Claudette, pretty little babe, Claudette
    Never makes me wait, Claudette
    She's the greatest little girl that I've ever met
    I get the best lovin' that I'll ever get
    From Claudette, pretty little babe, Claudette
    Oh oh, Claudette

    When me an my new baby have a date or three
    I'm gonna ask my baby if she'll marry me
    I'm gonna be so happy for the rest of my life
    When my brand new baby is my brand new wife

    Claudette, pretty little babe, Claudette
    Never makes me wait, Claudette
    She's the greatest little girl that I've ever met
    I get the best lovin' that I'll ever get
    From Claudette, pretty little babe, Claudette
    Oh oh, Claudette
    Mmh mmh, Claudette
    Oh oh, Claudette
    Mmh mmh, Claudette Writer/s: ROY ORBISON
