I wonder, my little darlin',
Where can you be this moonlit night?
Are you holdin' someone tight?
Oh baby, I wonder.
My heart is achin',
But I'm a fool to let it go on breakin'!
Maybe I'll awake to find that I'm mistaken,
Mmm, I wonder.
Baby, since we are through I've been through Lovers Lane,
But in my heart there's only pain.
You went travellin' but will it last?
Well I'm travellin' nowhere fast, mmm sweetheart, mmm sweetheart.
I wonder, well well well, little baby,
If this new love dies, where will you be?
Will your heart come runnin' back to me, baby?
