Whatcha Gonna Do When Your Baby Leaves You - Vince Taylor

Whatcha Gonna Do When Your Baby Leaves You

Vince Taylor

(Chuck Willis, PALETTE, 1961)

Whatcha gonna do when your baby leaves you
Whatcha gonna do (whatcha gonna do)
Whatcha gonna do when your baby leaves you
Whatcha gonna do (whatcha gonna do)
Well, when she cries her last goodbye
Are you gonna hang your head and cry
Whatcha gonna do when your baby leaves you
Whatcha gonna do (whatcha gonna do)

Your eyes will cry till they start burning
Yes they will (whatcha gonna do)
Your eyes will cry till they start a-burning
Yes they will (whatcha gonna do)
Then like the white hot fire from the fiery furnace
Shoot out flames, long red flames to burn us
Whatcha gonna do when your baby leaves you
Whatcha gonna do (whatcha gonna do)

Well, I told you my story, please believe me
'Cause it's true (whatcha gonna do)
I've told you a story, now believe me
'Cause it's true (whatcha gonna do)
Well, I broke the heart of the girl I love
Now she's gone my southern love
Now she's gone, oh she's gone my southern love
(Whatcha gonna do)
Now she's gone, oh she's gone my southern love
(Whatcha gonna do)
Now she's gone, gone-gone-gone my southern love
(Whatcha gonna do)
