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 I FOUND A NEW BABY,
I FOUND A NEW GIRL,
MY FASHION PLATE BABY
HAS GOT ME WHIRLED.
HER NEW KIND OF LOVIN'
DONE MADE ME HER SLAVE,
HER SWEET TURTLE DOVIN',
IT'S ALL THAT I CRAVE.

SWEETEST MISS,
WITH A KISS,
FULL OF BLISS,
CAN'T RESIST HER SOMEHOW.
TELLS ME LIES,
BUT SHE'S WISE,
NAUGHTY EYES,
MESMERIZE,
I VOW AND HOW.

I DON'T MEAN MAYBE,
I JUST HAD A FALL,
I FOUND A NEW BABY,
BRAND NEW BABY,
THAT'S ALL.
