Lyrics ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT,
DO YOU MISS ME TONIGHT,
ARE YOU SORRY
WE DRIFTED APART?
DOES YOUR MEMORY STRAY
TO A BRIGHT SUMMER DAY,
WHEN I KISSED YOU
AND CALLED YOU SWEETHEART?
DO THE CHAIRS
IN YOUR PARLOR
SEEM EMPTY AND BARE?
DO YOU GAZE
AT YOUR DOORSTEP
AND PICTURE ME THERE?
IS YOUR HEART
FILLED WITH PAIN?
SHALL I COME BACK
AGAIN?
TELL ME, DEAR,
ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT?

Lyrics GIMME A LITTLE KISS,
WILL YOU, HUH?
WHADDA YA GONNA MISS,
WILL YOU, HUH?
GOSH OH GEE,
WHY DO YOU REFUSE?
I CAN'T SEE
WHAT YOU GONNA LOSE.
GIMME A LITTLE SQUEEZE,
WILL YOU, HUH?
WHY DO YOU WANNA
MAKE ME BLUE?
I WOULDN'T SAY A WORD
IF I WERE ASKING FOR THE WORLD,
BUT WHAT'S A LITTLE KISS
BETWEEN A FELLA AND HIS GIRL?
GIMME A LITTLE KISS,
WILL YOU, HUH?
AND I'LL GIVE IT RIGHT BACK
TO YOU.

Lyrics SWEETHEART,
I LOVE YOU,
THINK THE WORLD
OF YOU,
BUT I'M AFRAID
YOU DON'T CARE FOR ME.
YOU NEVER SHOW IT,
DON'T LET ME KNOW IT,
EV'RYONE SAYS I'M A FOOL
TO BE PINING
THE WHOLE DAY THROUGH.
WHY DO YOU ACT
LIKE YOU DO?

YOU'RE MEAN TO ME,
WHY MUST YOU BE
MEAN TO ME?
GEE, HONEY,
IT SEEMS TO ME
YOU LOVE TO SEE ME
CRYIN',
I DON'T KNOW WHY.
I STAY HOME
EACH NIGHT,
WHEN YOU SAY
YOU'LL PHONE,
YOU DON'T
AND I'M LEFT ALONE,
SINGIN' THE BLUES
AND SIGHIN'.

YOU TREAT ME COLDLY
EACH DAY OF THE YEAR.
YOU ALWAYS SCOLD ME
WHENEVER SOMEBODY IS NEAR.

DEAR, IT MUST BE
GREAT FUN
TO BE MEAN TO ME.
YOU SHOULDN'T,
FOR CAN'T YOU SEE
WHAT YOU MEAN TO ME?

I TREAT YOU SWEETLY,
I'M YOURS COMPLETELY,
THINK OF YOU,
DREAM OF YOU,
ALL DAY THROUGH.
I THOUGHT I PLEASED YOU,
WHATEVER SEIZED YOU
THAT MADE YOU TREAT ME
THE WAY YOU DO?
LOVE YOU,
I ALWAYS WILL,
THINK OF YOU ONLY,
AND STILL...

YOU'RE MEAN TO ME,
WHY MUST YOU BE
MEAN TO ME?
GEE, HONEY,
IT SEEMS TO ME
YOU LOVE TO SEE ME
CRYIN',
I DON'T KNOW WHY.
I STAY HOME
EACH NIGHT,
WHEN YOU SAY
YOU'LL PHONE,
YOU DON'T
AND I'M LEFT ALONE,
SINGIN' THE BLUES
AND SIGHIN'.

YOU TREAT ME COLDLY
EACH DAY OF THE YEAR.
YOU ALWAYS SCOLD ME
WHENEVER SOMEBODY IS NEAR.

DEAR, IT MUST BE
GREAT FUN TO BE
MEAN TO ME.
YOU SHOULDN'T,
FOR CAN'T YOU SEE
WHAT YOU MEAN TO ME?

Lyrics verse 1:
I'VE GOT A LOVESICK TALE
TO TELL TO YOU,
'THO' IT'S NO AFFAIR
OF MINE.
IT'S ABOUT A GAL
NAMED SUE
AND BOY NAMED LOU,
THEY WERE FIGHTING
ALL THE TIME.
LOU CAME HOME
ONE AFTERNOON,
FOUND AN EMPTY DINING ROOM,
WITHOUT A WORD
HIS TURTLEDOVE HAD FLOWN,
SO HE BEGAN TO MOAN.

Chorus:
MY SWEETIE WENT AWAY
BUT SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHERE,
SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHEN,
SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHY,
OR BID ME GOODBYE,
AND I'M AS BLUE
AS CAN BE.
I KNOW SHE
LOVES ANOTHER ONE,
BUT SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHO,
SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHICH,
SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHAT
THAT RASCAL
HAS GOT
THAT TOOK MY SWEETIE FROM ME.
I'M LIKE
A LITTLE LOST SHEEP
AND I CAN'T SLEEP
BUT I KEEP
TRYIN' TO FORGET,
THE ONE I LOVE
HAS GONE
AND LEFT ME
ALL ALONE.
I MOAN
MY SWEETIE WENT AWAY
BUT SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHERE,
SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHEN,
SHE
DIDN'T SAY WHY,
I KNOW THAT I'LL DIE,
WHY DON'T SHE
HURRY BACK HOME.

verse 2:
YOU OUGHTA SEE
THIS LOVESICK FELLOW,
NAMED LOU,
DOESN'T DO
A THING BUT SIGH.
AND WHILE
HE IS WONDERING
WHAT BECAME
OF SUE,
HE IS
A SIGHT
FOR ANY EYE.
BOUGHT SOME POISON,
BOUGHT A GUN,
SAYS GOODBYE
TO EVERYONE,
AND WHILE HE IS
DOPING OUT SOME WAY
TO DIE,
HE CAN'T FORGET
TO CRY.

Chorus:

Alt. Title Walking My Baby Back Home

Writers Fred E. Ahlert, Roy Turk

Genres Standard, Pop

Recorded 2008

Lyrics GEE! IT'S GREAT,
AFTER BEING OUT
LATE,
WALKIN' MY BABY BACK HOME.
ARM IN ARM,
OVER MEADOW
AND FARM,
WALKIN' MY BABY BACK HOME.
WE GO ALONG
HARMONIZING
A SONG,
OR I'M RECITING
A POEM.
OWLS GO BY,
AND THEY GIVE ME
THE EYE,
WALKIN' MY BABY BACK HOME.

WE STOP
FOR A WHILE,
SHE GIVES ME
A SMILE,
AND SNUGGLES
HER HEAD
TO MY CHEST.
WE START IN
TO PET,
AND THAT'S
WHEN I GET
HER TALCUM
ALL OVER
MY VEST.

AFTER I
KINDA STRAIGHTEN
MY TIE,
SHE HAS TO BORROW
MY COMB.
ONE KISS THEN,
I CONTINUE AGAIN,
WALKIN' MY BABY BACK HOME.

SHE'S AFRAID
OF THE DARK,
SO I HAVE
TO PARK
OUTSIDE
OF HER DOOR
TILL IT'S LIGHT.
SHE SAYS
IF I TRY
TO KISS HER
SHE'LL CRY
I'LL DRY
HER TEARS
ALL THROUGH
THE NIGHT.

HAND IN HAND
TO A BARBECUE STAND
RIGHT FROM HER DOORWAY
WE ROAM.
EATS AND THEN
IT'S A PLEASURE
AGAIN,
WALKIN' MY BABY BACK HOME.

Lyrics [verse 1]:
WHY MUST I LIVE IN DREAMS
OF THE DAYS THAT I USED TO KNOW?
WHY CAN'T I FIND
REAL PEACE OF MIND,
AND RETURN TO THE LONG AGO?

[Chorus]:
WHERE THE BLUE OF THE NIGHT
MEETS THE GOLD OF THE DAY,
SOMEONE WAITS FOR ME.
AND THE GOLD OF HER HAIR
CROWNS THE BLUE OF HER EYES
LIKE A HALO, TENDERLY.

IF ONLY I COULD SEE HER,
HOW HAPPY I WOULD BE!

WHERE THE BLUE OF THE NIGHT
MEETS THE GOLD OF THE DAY,
SOMEONE WAITS FOR ME.

[verse 2]:
MEM'RIES COME BACK TO ME
OF A SUNSET BEHIND A HILL.
EACH NEW BORN DAY
TAKES ME AWAY
TO THE PLACE
THAT I LONG FOR STILL.

[Chorus]:
WHERE THE BLUE OF THE NIGHT
MEETS THE GOLD OF THE DAY,
SOMEONE WAITS FOR ME.
AND THE GOLD OF HER HAIR
CROWNS THE BLUE OF HER EYES
LIKE A HALO, TENDERLY.

IF ONLY I COULD SEE HER,
HOW HAPPY I WOULD BE!

WHERE THE BLUE OF THE NIGHT
MEETS THE GOLD OF THE DAY,
SOMEONE WAITS FOR ME.
