Filipino Baby - Hank Locklin lyrics


When the warship left Manila sailing proudly o'er the sea

Many sailors hearts were filled with sad regret

Looking backward to this Island where they spent such happy hours

Making love to every pretty gal they've met

Well up stopped a little sailor with his bright eyes all aglow

Saying take a look my gal'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 treasure and my pet

Her teeth are bright and pearly and her hair is black as jet

Her lips are sweet as honey and her heart is true I know

And I love my little Filipino baby

[ guitar ]

In a little rustic cottage in the Port of Fillippines

Dwells a pretty little maiden all alone

And she's thinking of her true love though he's far off cross 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...
