Take Good Care of My Baby

#SongLyricSunday, the prompt for the day is take/taking.  My choice for this Sunday is, “Take Good Care of My Baby”.Per wikipedia:Take Good Care of My Baby” is a song written by Carole King and Gerry Goffin. The song was made famous by Bobby Vee, when it was released in 1961.

 

Take Good Care of My Baby
My tears are fallin’
‘Cause you’ve taken her away
And though it really hurts me so
There’s something that I’ve gotta say
Take good care of my baby
Please don’t ever make her blue
Just tell her that you love her
Make sure you’re thinking of her
In everything you say and do
Aww, take good care of my baby
Now don’t you ever make her cry
Just let your love surround her
Paint a rainbow all around her
Don’t let her see a cloudy sky
Once upon a time that little girl was mine
If I’d been true, I know she’d never be with you
So, take good care of my baby
Be just as kind as you can be
And if you should discover
That you don’t really love her
Just send my baby back home to me
Well, take good care of my baby
Be just as kind as you can be
And if you should discover
That you don’t really love her
Just send my baby back home to me
Aww, take good care of my baby
Well, take good care of my baby
Just, take good care of my baby
Songwriters: Carole King / Gerry Goffin

      My mom had a lot of music from that time, I think she belonged to a record club or something. I benefited from it!
