Barkin' Up The Wrong Tree
(Don Woody - Paul Simmons)
Well I went to my baby on bended knees
baby, baby, baby, will you marry me?
She said: "sorry daddy but what can I say,
I found a new love just the other day"
And you're barking up the wrong tree
Well, you're barking up the wrong tree
Yes, you're barking up the wrong tree
That's what she said to me
Well I pleaded and begged nearly out of my mind
I said: "baby, baby, baby, girls are hard to find"
She said: "sorry daddy but try to understand,
I'm goin' with the cutest guy in the land"
Now, my heart was broken and it felt so blue
I said: "baby, baby, baby, does it mean we're through?"
She said: "sorry daddy but can't you take a hint?
My guy's got money, more than the mint"
Now my friend told me the other day
That my baby, baby, baby, had gone away
She took all his money and she left him flat
And let me tell you people I'm so glad that
