FILIPINO BABY

KEY: C

INTRO: G  C

VERSE:
C                                      F
When the warships left Manella sailin' proudly o'er the sea
F       C                   D                  G
All the sailors hearts were filled with fond regret
G       C                                    F      
Lookin' backward to this island where they'd spent such happy hour
G                                       C
Makin' love to every pretty girl they'd met

VERSE:
When up stepped a little sailor with his bright eyes all a-glow
Sayin' take a look at my gal's photograph
Then the sailors gathered 'round him just to look upon her face
And he said I love my Filipino baby

CHORUS:
C                               F
She's my Filipino baby she's my treasure and my pet
F   C                                   D                G
Her teeth are bright and pearly and her hair is black as jet
G      C                               F      
Oh her lips are sweet as honey and her heart is true I know
F        G                       C
She's my darlin' little Filipino baby

BREAK: C  F  G  C

VERSE:
In a little rustic cottage in the far-off Philipines
Dwells a lonely little maiden all alone
She is thinkin' of her true love though he's far across the sea
But her heart beats true for him and him alone

VERSE:
Then one day he whispered Darlin' I've come back from Caroline
I've come back to claim the only girl I love
Then that night there was a wedding all the ship's crew gathered 'round
And he wed his little Filipino baby

CHORUS:
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
Oh her lips are sweet as honey and her heart is true I know
She's my darlin' little Filipino baby
