MY FILIPINO BABY (Billy Cox / Clark Van Ness / Ernest Tubb) Ernest Tubb – 1946, 59 When the warships left Manila, sailing proudly over the sea All, the sailor’s hearts were filled with found regret Looking backward to this island where they spent such happy hours Making love to ev’er pretty girl they met Then up step a little sailor with his bright eye’s all aglow Saying, take a look at my gal’s photograph Then the sailor’s gathered around him Just to look upon her face And he said I love my Filipino Baby Course: She’s my Filipino Baby She’s my treasure and my pet Her teeth are bright and pearly And her hair is black as jet O’ her lips are sweet as honey And her heart is true I know She’s my darling little Filipino Baby INSTRUMENTALS In a little rustic cottage in the far off Philippines Dwells a lonely little maiden all alone She is thinking of her true love, though he is far across the sea And her heart beats true for him and him alone Then one day he whispered "Darlin’ I’ve come back from Caroline" "I’ve come back to claim the only girl I love" Then that night there was a wedding while the ship’s crew gathered round And he wed his little Filipino Baby Course: She’s my Filipino Baby She’s my treasure and my pet Her teeth are bright and pearly And her hair is black as jet O’ her lips are sweet as honey And her heart is true I know She’s my darling little Filipino Baby (Contributed by lylemalone - May 2005)
