Lyrics [verse 1]:
I'M AS HAPPY
AS A KING,
FEELIN' GOOD
'N' EVERYTHING.
I'M JUST LIKE
A BIRD IN SPRING,
GOT TO LET IT OUT.
IT'S MY SWEETIE,
CAN'T YOU GUESS?
WILD ABOUT HER,
I'LL CONFESS;
DOES SHE LOVE ME?
OH, MY, YES!
THAT'S JUST WHY
I SHOUT:

[First Chorus]:
EV'RYBODY LOVES MY BABY
BUT MY BABY
DON'T LOVE NOBODY
BUT ME,
NOBODY BUT ME.
EV'RYBODY WANTS MY BABY,
BUT MY BABY
DON'T WANT NOBODY
BUT ME,
THAT'S PLAIN TO SEE.
SHE IS
MY SWEET PATOOTIE
AND I AM
HER LOVIN' MAN,
KNOWS HOW
TO DO HER DUTY,
LOVES ME
LIKE NO OTHER CAN.
THAT'S WHY
EV'RYBODY LOVES MY BABY,
BUT MY BABY
DON'T LOVE NOBODY
BUT ME,
NOBODY BUT ME.

[verse 2]:
EV'RYWHERE
MY BABY GOES,
DRESSED UP
IN THE SWELLEST CLOTHES;
SHE JUST VAMPS
A GANG OF BEAUX,
BUT THAT'S ALL
BUSHWA.
THEY ALL TRY
TO SET A PACE,
JUST TO SEE
WHO'LL BE
THE ACE;
THEN SHE PUTS THEM
IN THEIR PLACE,
WHEN THEY GO
TOO FAR.

[Second Chorus]:
EV'RYBODY LOVES MY BABY
BUT MY BABY
DON'T LOVE NOBODY
BUT ME,
NOBODY BUT ME.
EV'RYBODY WANTS MY BABY,
BUT MY BABY
DON'T WANT NOBODY
BUT ME,
THAT'S PLAIN TO SEE.
NOW WHEN MY BABY
KISSES ME
UPON MY ROSEY CHEEKS,
I JUST LET
THOSE KISSES BE,
DON'T WASH MY FACE
FOR WEEKS.
THAT'S WHY
EV'RYBODY LOVES MY BABY,
BUT MY BABY
DON'T LOVE NOBODY
BUT ME,
NOBODY BUT ME.

[Third Chorus]:
EV'RYBODY LOVES MY BABY
BUT MY BABY
DON'T LOVE NOBODY
BUT ME,
NOBODY BUT ME.
EV'RYBODY WANTS MY BABY,
BUT MY BABY
DON'T WANT NOBODY
BUT ME,
THAT'S PLAIN TO SEE.
SHE'S GOT
A FORM LIKE VENUS,
HONEST,
I AIN'T TALKING
GREEK,
NO ONE
CAN COME BETWEEN US,
SHE'S MY SHEBA,
I'M HER SHEIK.
THAT'S WHY
EV'RYBODY LOVES MY BABY,
BUT MY BABY
DON'T LOVE NOBODY
BUT ME,
NOBODY BUT ME.

Lyrics LOVE,
GIVE ME LOVE,
ONLY LOVE,
WHAT ELSE IS THERE?
TWO EYES
NOT SEEING
AND TWO ARMS
NOT SHARING
AND TWO LIPS
NOT FEELING.
WHAT GOOD ARE THEY?
DOESN'T THE NIGHT
SEEM ENDLESS?
DOESN'T THE DAY
GO SLOW?
DOESN'T THE DARK
LOOK FRIENDLESS
AND OH,
WHAT GOOD IS THAT?
SO GIVE ME LOVE,
ONLY LOVE,
THAT'S EVERYTHING.
TWO EYES
START SEEING
AND TWO ARMS
START SHARING
AND TWO LIPS
START KNOWING
HOW GOOD IT IS.
TO FEEL,
TO TOUCH,
TO CARE.
FOR AFTER ALL,
AFTER LOVE
WHAT ELSE IS THERE?
