Lyrics

Verse 1

I left my darling the other day, We started quarreling, I went away; But now I wish that I was back. I love my baby, indeed I do, And who knows, maybe she loves me too, But that's just maybe, And that won't do.

Chorus

All that worries me Is someone else may be there while I'm gone: In my dreams I see A couple spooning on the lawn. That very thought just keeps me worried; I lay awake till the break of dawn. I must hurt back, 'Cause someone else may be there while I'm gone.

Verse 2

I'm wild about her; that is why I'm blue— I hate to doubt her the way I do; I may be wrong, I may be right. Although I worry an awful lot, If I should hurry back to the spot, She may be waiting, She may be not!

Repeat Chorus
