SHE WAS MY BABY (HE WAS MY FRIEND) (Joe Byers) Jerry Lee Lewis - 1964 I gave my car keys to my buddy last night He was supposed to get my baby and bring her back Well, he took off like a flash down Highway One-Eighty-Three But he never brought my baby back to me, now She was my baby, he was my friend But this is where love and friendship ends 'Cos I heard he was in old Mexico with my Cecilia Eating enchiladas and sipping tequila I hired a private eye to track him down He said, "I'm gonna need clues if they can ever be found" Well, I said the last time I seen 'em was on Highway One-Eighty-Three But he never brought my baby back to me, now She was my baby, he was my friend But this is where love and friendship ends 'Cos I heard he sold the car and then he kept the doggone money He was flyin' to Miami with-a my honey, yeah (Piano Break) I couldn't believe that things would ever go this far First my baby, then my buddy, now my brand new car 'Cos it seems like yesterday he left on One-Eighty-Three He never brought my baby back to me, now She was my baby, he was my friend But this is where love and friendship ends 'Cos I heard he was in Philadelphia lookin' real neat Doin' The Monkey with my baby on-a South Street, c'mon now She was my baby, he was my friend But this is where love and friendship ends 'Cos I heard he was out in Philadelphia a-lookin' real neat A-doin' The Monkey with my baby...........FADE (Transcribed/Contributed by Mel Priddle & Jean-Marie del Fabbro - July 2010)
