It's going round the town
It's going round the town
It's going round the town
You're so lovable

My baby gave me notice to quit
I just can't get used to it
She broke my little heart in two
Now somebody else is being the same old you


My baby has Egyptian eyes
And a wicked look beyond compare
If you thought I was a fool for you
Then I must be a bigger fool for her


He'd turn the flowers of springtime into a wreath
He says he'd love you eternally
I say please please can't you keep it brief

They say they're going to bury you
Because you're so lovable
Put your money where your mouth was
You're so lovable
Each tender mumble brings us closer to bedlam
You're so lovable
The toast of the town and the talk of the bedroom
You're so lovable

You're so sweet
You're so honest
You say 'I'll be true to you boy'
But I won't promise
Then you say you love me
Then you show me
As you lie there so lifelike below me
