Now when a girl reach the age of eighteen
She begins to think she's grown
Hey that's the kind of little girl
You never find at home
Come see me early in the morning
Baby, 'bout the break of day
Man you ought to see me hug
Hug that pillow
Where my sweet baby used to lay

One drink of wine
Two drinks of gin
A pretty little girl put me
In the shape I'm in
Come see me early in the morning
Baby, 'bout the break of day
Man you ought to see me hug that pillow
Where my sweet baby used to lay

Let me tell you something
I'm still crazy about the girl
I'll tell about it
Just a little bit
Right now

Yes I went down to the Club Cedar baby
I peeped in the door
There she was doing the boogie woogie
Out in the middle of the floor
Come see me early in the morning
Baby, 'bout the break of day
Man you ought to see me hug that pillow
Where my sweet baby used to lay
