Take Good Care of My Baby

Cheating man loses

or he’ll take her back.

Was this a request, Earl? Can't believe this music is active on your listening list. This music is the music of my adolescence. I would have been a sophomore/junior in high school. I loved this song and it is fun to hear it again. Re the haiku; I don't think the writer would actively 'take' her back, but would be there waiting. Remember, 1961 is barely out of the 50's.

Nope, not a request. Just heard it on XM Radio the other day. Good song. And I agree about wanting her back. But the line "just send my baby back home to me" always struck me as so bossy and possessive -- thinking of the girl like an object. That's probably why she left him in the first place. The untrue part is just a cover. :^)
