Everybody look at me, happy honey you will see,
I’ve got someone nice, oh gee,
Oh joy,what bliss.
Just the treasure that I need, pure as gold and guaranteed,
Is she pretty, yes indeed,
Let me tell you this:
I’ve found a new baby, a sweet honeybee,
My fashions-plate baby, has trilled me with joy!
Her new way of lovin’, has made me her slave,
Her sweet turtle dovin’, is all that I crave.
Sweetest kiss, what a kiss, full of bliss, can’t resist, somehow,
Tells me lies, but she’s wise, naughty eyes mesmerize, I vow and how!
I don’t mean maybe, I just had to fall,
I’ve found a new baby, a new baby, that’s all
