CLAUDETTE

Original Roy Orbison version


Well I got a brand new baby and I feel so good
She loves me even better than I thought she would
I'm on my way to her house and I'm plumb out of breath
When I see her tonight I'm gonna squeeze her to death

Claudette, pretty little pet, Claudette
And never make me fret, Claudette

Well I'm a lucky man, my baby treats me right
She's gonna let me hug and kiss and hold her tight
And when the date is over and we're at her front door
When I kiss her goodnight, I'll holler, "More, more, more!"

Claudette, pretty little pet, Claudette
Never make me fret, Claudette
The greatest little girl that I've ever met
I get the best love and that I'll ever get from Claudette
Huh huh, Claudette, yeah hey, Claudette

When me and my new baby have a date or three
I'm gonna ask my baby if she'll marry me
I'm gonna be so happy for the rest of my life
When my brand new baby is my brand new wife

Claudette, huh huh, Claudette, yeah hey, Claudette
The greatest little girl that I've ever met
I get the best love and that I'll ever get from Claudette
Huh huh, Claudette, whoa whoa, Claudette
Yeah yeah, Claudette, huh huh, Claudette
Whoa whoa, Claudette, yeah yeah... [fades out]
