Eve Goldberg Lyr Req: When My Baby Double Talks to Me (Travis) (10) Lyr Req: When My Baby Does Her Double Talk To Me 07 Sep 05

Hello Mudcatters!

I haven't been hanging around much these days - I hope to be around more in the near future. But, I'm looking for lyrics that I can't find anywhere else on the internet -- and who better to ask than Mudcatters?

I'm looking for complete lyrics (and chords if available) for "When My Baby Does Her Double Talk to Me" which I believe was written by Merle Travis (I know he made a recording of it, but I'm not completely sure he wrote it). The part I remember goes:

When my baby does her double talk to me
I get just as happy as I can be
[Maybe a few more lines in here]
And everytime I hold her hand
We're in another land
With a language only we can understand
[a few more lines in here]

It's only the one verse, but it gets repeated with funny "secret language" variations, like:

When my bail-faby does her dulla-fubble talk to meel-fee,
I get just as hal-fappy as I can beel-fee
And everytime I holo-fold her hal-fand
We're in another lal-fand
With a lal-fanguage only weel-a-feel can understal-fand

I think there may be one or two other variations.

Any takers?
