  • Baby doll
    Do you believe they'll catch you when you fall?
    And when morning comes
    The sun is gonna shine

    Don't forget your minor key's
    Your half lit cigarette
    'Cause when morning comes
    God knows that you'll be mine

    So let me in
    I'm ready to beg and to sing for my sins
    Not leave it to chance and sweet coincidence
    Well, that's just crazy and you know it's true

    Well, they said you was long gone
    I just laughed and said alright bring her home tonight
    And I heard you was graciously put on
    I just laughed and said good night, guess it's alright

    Baby doll
    The men who hang like flowers in you're hall
    Are asking when
    Your love is gonna show

    And who knows why
    The love you need will always pass you by
    Well, I heard it's true
    Your love is gonna grow

    So let me know
    'Cause I can stay or honey I can go
    Just to wherever you tell me so
    And find my place there and there I'll stay

    Well, they said you was burned out
    I just laughed and said come on, she's not burned she's just gone
    And it took me too long till I found out
    Faces that you know the best oh well, I guess

    And they laughed when you said you was leaving
    Everybody knows you well except for me, can't you tell?
    And you watched from the wings of the late show
    Roses by your feet are red for me you said

    Baby doll, baby doll, baby doll, baby doll
    Baby doll, baby doll, baby doll, baby dollWriter/s: JOHN LAWLER
