Subject: Lyr Add: I DON'T BELIEVE YOU'VE MET MY BABY^^
I DON'T BELIEVE YOU'VE MET MY BABY
(Autry Inman/Tree Publishing Co., Inc., BMI, 1956)

Last night, my dear, the rain was falling. I went to bed so sad and blue.
Then I had a dream of you.
I dreamed I was strolling in the evening underneath the harvest moon.
I was thinking about you.
And then you met me in the moonlight. The stars were shining in your eyes.
But another was there too.

"I don't believe you've met my baby." You looked at him. You looked at me.
I wondered who you were talking to.
I shook the hand of your stranger but I was shakin' more inside.
I was still a-wond'rin' who.

Your arm was restin' on his shoulder. You smiled at him. He smiled at you.
His eyes were filled with victory.
He said, "My sister wants to marry," and then my heart was filled with ease.
I knew that you would marry me.
