Verse:
Who's that coming down the street?  Who's that looking so petite?
Who's that coming down to meet me here?
Who's that you know who I mean,  Sweetest "who" you've ever seen,
I could tell her miles away from here.
 
Chorus:
Yes,  Sir,  That's my Baby,  No,  Sir,  Don't mean "Maybe,"
Yes, Sir,  That's my Baby now.
Yes,  ma'am,  we've decided,  No ma'am,  we won't hide it,
Yes, ma'am you're invited now.
By the way,  By the way,
When we reach the preacher I'll say,
Yes,  Sir,  That's my Baby,  No,  Sir,  Don't mean "Maybe,"
Yes,  Sir,  That's my Baby now.
