Well, well, well. Look who's here. I haven't seen you in many a year. If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake, baked a cake, baked a cake If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake Howdya do, howdya do, howdya do? Had you dropped me a letter, I'd a-hired a band, Grandest band in the land Had you dropped me a letter, I'd a-hired a band And spread the welcome mat for you Oh, I don't know where you came from 'cause I don't know where you've been But it really doesn't matter Grab a chair and fill your platter And dig, dig, dig right in If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake, hired a band, goodness sake! If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake Howdya do, howdya do, howdya do? (Instrumental Break) If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake, baked a cake, baked a cake If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake Howdya do, howdya do, howdya do? Had you dropped me a letter, I'd a-hired a band, Grandest band in the land Had you dropped me a letter, I'd a-hired a band Spread the welcome mat for you Oh, I don't know where you came from 'cause I don't know where you've been But it really doesn't matter Grab a chair and fill your platter And dig, dig, dig right in If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake, hired a band, goodness sake! If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake Howdya do, howdya do, howdya do? Howdya do, howdya do, howdya do? Howdya do-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
