Chloe! Chloe! Someone's calling, no reply Nightshade's falling, hear him sigh Chloe! Chloe! Empty spaces in his eyes Empty arms outstretched, he's crying Through the black of night I've got to go where you are If it's dark or bright I've got to go where you are I'll go through the dismal swampland Searching for you For if you are lost there Let me be there, too Through the smoke and flame I've got to go where you are For no ways can be too far Where you are Ain' no chains can bind you If you live, I'll find you Love is calling me I've got to go where you are ***** As recorded by Spike Jones & His City Slickers: Chloe! Chloe! Someone’s callin’ (Rrrrring-rrrring, rrrring-rrrring) Hello. You don’t say. Hm, Hm You don’t say You don’t say. (Who was it?) He didn’t say. No reply. Night shades fallin’ (kerrrash) Hear him sigh (Hhhhhh!) Chloe! Where are ya yo’old bat! Empty faces meet his eyes Empty arms outstretched, he’s cryin’ Through the black of night, I’ve got to go where you are (Whether it’s near or whether it’s far I wanna be thar wherever you are) If it’s wrong or right, I got to go where you are (Hello Chloe, what do ya knowy I just got back from a vaudeville showy) I roamed through the dismal swamplands Searching for you For it’s you I lost there, let me be there too (Three, four, Halt) And through that smoke and flame I’ve got to go where you are (Thunder and lightning, shower and snow, When I get the call, I gotta go) For no place can be too far, where you are, Ain’t no chains can bind you And if you live, I’ll find you Love is callin’ me, I got to go where you are (Sort of Orchestral Break) Aiiiiin’t no chains can bind you, And, and if you live, ha ha, I’m gonna find you my pretty baby (POP) Love is callin’ me, Rrrring-rrrring Hello, you don’t say, you don’t say. (Who was it?) Same Guy! I’ve got to go where you are. (Contributed by Bill Huntley - January 2005)
