or
Bo Diddley

Dearest darling,
Dearest darling,
Dearest darling.

Don't you know,
The lord above,
Created you,
Just for me to love,

Picked you out,
From all the rest,
Because he knew I loved you best.

Dearest darling,
Dearest darling,
Dearest darling, take my hand, take my hand

I once had a heart,
So trill and true,
But now it's gone,
From me to you,

Take care of it,
Like I have done,
For you have two hearts,
And I have none.

Dearest darling,
Dearest darling,
Dearest darling.

If I get to heaven,
Before you do,
I'll try to make a hole,
And pull you thru.

Dearest... dearest... dearest.

If I go to heaven,
And you not there,
I'm gonna write your name,
On the heavenly stair,

If you aren't there,
By turn of day,
Then I know baby,
You know the way.

Dearest... dearest... dearest,
O sweet baby, o sweet baby...
