THERE AIN'T NO "MAYBE" IN MY BABY'S EYES

Doodle-do-do-do-do-do,
Doodle-do-do-do-do-do,
Doodle-do-do-do-do-do,Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do...

My baby never told me
Exactly how I stand,
She even tries to scold me
When I hold her little hand,
My baby may be bashful,
My baby may be shy,
But I'm happy, oh, so happy,
And I'll tell you why:

Oh, I know my baby loves me,
I can tell my baby loves me,
For there ain't no maybe in my baby's eyes!

Even though she don't express it,
She might just as well confess it,
For there ain't no maybe in my baby's eyes!

We sit each evening,
And never speak;
I wish each evening
Could last a week.

Oh, I know my baby loves me,
I can tell my baby loves me,
For there ain't no maybe in my baby's eyes!

Although our conversation Is mostly just "hello,"
That certain hesitation
Every time I start to go,
Her little way of saying That little word, "good-bye,"
Makes me happy, oh, so happy,
And here's just why:

Oh, I know my baby loves me,
I can tell my baby loves me,
For there ain't no maybe in my baby's eyes!

And even though she don't express it,
She might just as well confess it,
Oh, there ain't no maybe in my baby's eyes!
We sit each evening,
And never speak;
And I wish each evening
Could last a week.

Oh, I know my baby loves me,
I can tell my baby loves me,
For there ain't no maybe in my baby's eyes!

Oh, I know my baby loves me,
I can tell my baby loves me,
For there ain't no maybe in my baby's eyes!

Even though she don't express it,
She might just as well confess it,
For there ain't no maybe in my baby's eyes!

We sit each evening,
And never speak;
And I wish each evening
Could last a week.

Oh, I know my baby loves me,
I can tell my baby loves me,
For there ain't no maybe in my baby's eyes!
