Lyrics I CAN TELL BY THE LOOK
IN MY BABY'S EYES,
THAT I CAN'T KEEP UP
WITH THOSE OTHER GUYS.
ALL I DO
IS WALK THE FLOOR,
I GOT A FEELIN'
MY BABY DON'T LOVE ME NO MORE,
AND I FEEL THAT OLD AGE COMING ON.

GOIN' TO THE DOCTOR,
CAN'T TAKE YOU,
DON'T KNOW
WHAT THE DOCTOR CAN DO.
I'VE BEEN AROUND
TOO MANY YEARS,
I'VE ALSO SHED
TOO MANY TEARS,
AND I FEEL THAT OLD AGE COMING ON.

I SAID,
BABY, BABY,
MAKE LOVE TO ME,
I'LL MAKE YOU HAPPY
AS A LITTLE GIRL WANTS TO BE.
SHE SAID,
DADDY, I WOULD IF I COULD,
BUT HOT SPRINGS WATER
WON'T DO YOU NO GOOD.
AND I FEEL THAT OLD AGE COMING ON.

I'VE BEEN WITH MY BABY
A LONG, LONG TIME,
EVERYTHING SHE'S GOT IS HERS
AND ALSO MINE.
I SAID,
LET'S GET MARRIED THIS VERY DAY.
SHE SAID,
WHO'S GONNA GIVE THE BRIDE
AND GROOM AWAY.
AND I FEEL THAT OLD AGE COMING ON.
