  • Lyrics
  • In the midnight moonlight hour
    I'll be walking a long and lonely mile,
    And every time I do,
    I keep seeing this picture of you

    Here comes my baby, here she comes now,
    And-a it becomes as no surprise to me
    with another guy,

    Well, here comes my baby, here she comes now,
    Walking with a love,
    With a love that's oh so fine
    Never to be mine, no matter how I try,

    You'll never walk alone,
    and you're forever talking on the phone
    I try to call you names,
    but every time it comes out the same

    Here comes my baby; here she comes now,
    And-a it becomes as no surprise to me
    with another guy,

    Here comes my baby; here she comes now,
    And-a it becomes as no surprise to me
    with another guy

  • Canuckteacher from OntarioMust also add: know why we all love this song? It has 'more Cowbell'!
  • Canuckteacher from OntarioI love the energy in this song--sounds like it was recorded live in a highschool gym. Does anyone know WHERE it was recorded? Tnx.
    Fun fact: RCA (?) signed the Tremeloes to a contract, declining the 2nd place runner-up after auditions. Know who? (the Beatles).
  • Pismotality from London"Parrotface" is an allusion to the English comedian Freddie "Parrotface" Davies, who shot to fame in Britain after an appearance on TV talent show Opportunity Knocks in 1964; I'm not sure whether they worked together but would have been on the same cabaret circuits. The distinctive rasping lisp of Freddie's character Samuel Tweet was much imitated by schoolchildren and others in the 1960s; in his autobiography Funny Bones (Scratching Shed, 2014) Freddie says that at a party to celebrate the end of Cilla Black's TV series Paul McCartney told him he often adopted Freddie's voice in rehearsals.
  • Jack from TorontoThe Tremeloes 1967 version of "Here Comes My Baby" is my favourite song in the whole world, I love its vibe.
  • Natalie from LondonThis song is published by Angusa Music Ltd. in a number of European countries.
  • Farrah from Elon, NcI didn't know that Cat Stevens wrote this groovy song!!! It's one of my all-time favorites.
