Songtekst

Babes in the wood

We had a quarrel, we had a fight
Looking funny you and I
we were running round the house shouting murder
Believe me, when I say, don´t you ever get in my way
If you do there´ll be no head on your shoulders
Where she´s gone boy?


Refrain:
Babes in the wood won´t she love me good
She took away my Cadillac with all the money in the back
Babes in the wood, Babes in the wood won´t she love me good
She took away my Cadillac with all the money in the back
Babes in the wood

I got the sheriff on the cage a missing person, a pretty face
you gotta find her bring her back home to me
From the mountain above the bridge, you see the forest above the ridge
Get searching, don´t you stop find my Baby
where she´s gone kid?

Refrain:
Babes in the wood won´t she love me good
She took away my Cadillac with all the money in the back
Babes in the wood, Babes in the wood Won´t she love me good
She took away my Cadillac with all the money in the back
Babes in the wood

Bridge:
I hope there are no Indians looking for a squaw- Mohicans and stocking tops - Won´t mix too well for sure I think

Well I´m looking on my own, I find my Baby building a home
She said I`m sorry what I´ve done please believe me
Now we live in harmony, I love my sugar, she loves me
Keep her busy day and night treat her right
What you making boy?

Refrain:
Babes in the wood won´t she love me good
She took away my Cadillac with all the money in the back
Babes in the wood, Babes in the wood Won´t she love me good
She took away my Cadillac with all the money in the back
Babes in the wood

She took away my Cadillac and sold it for a little shack
Babes in the wood, Babes in the wood
