      About "Filipino Baby"

      Lyrics for Ernest Tubb - "Filipino Baby"

      When the warship's left Manila sailing proudly o'er the sea
      All the sailors hearts were filled with fond regret
      Looking backward to this Island where they spent such happy hours
      Making love to every pretty girl they've met
      (Well up stopped a little sailor with his pride eyes all aglow
      Saying take a look at my girl's photograph)
      Then the sailors gathered round him just to look upon her face
      And he said I love my Filipino baby
      She's my Filipino baby she's my trasure and my pet
      Her teeth are bright and pearly and her hair is black as jet
      Oh her lips are sweet as honey and her heart is true I know
      She's my darling my little Filipino baby
      [ steel ]
      In a little rustic cottage in the port of Filipines dwells a lonely little maiden all alone
      (She is thinking of her true love though he's far across the sea
      And her heart beats true for him and him alone)
      Then one day he whispered darling I've come back from Caroline
      I've come back to claim the only girl I love
      And that night there was a wedding while the ships crew gathered round
      And he wed his little Filipino baby
      She's my Filipino baby...
