Cherry Oh Baby – (Song Lyric Sunday)

I’ve gone with a cover of Eric Donaldson’s 1971 song by reggae group from England UB40. It’s on their 1983 album Labour Of Love. Feels like one of those ‘defining’ coming of age songs.

[Chorus:]
Oh, Cherry, oh Cherry, oh baby
Don’t ya know I in need of thee
You don’t believe it true
Why don’t you love me, too
Its so long I’ve been waiting
For you to come right in
Now that we are together
Is make my joy run over

Yeah [Repeat: x7]

{Chorus]
Oh Cherry, oh Cherry, oh baby
Don’t ya know I in love with you
You don’t believe I know
So why don’t you try me
I’m never gonna let you down
Never make you wear no frown
You say you love me madly
Then why do you treat me badly

Yeah [Repeat: x7]

[Chorus]
Oh Cherry, oh Cherry, oh baby
Don’t ya know I in love with you
You don’t believe I know
So why don’t you try me (try me)
I’m never gonna let you down no
Never make you wear no frown
You say you love me madly
Then why do you treat me badly

Yeah [Repeat: x3]

It had been previously covered raunchily by The Rolling Stones … Just saying!

Kept it short today.
