Credited to Buddy Knox on the single release (flip-side of Party Doll), a slower alternate take from the same session was released years later.

(Listen to my story...)
Well, my baby told me Saturday
That she was leaving town
Well, now my baby's gone away
She never comes around
Oh well, she left me
Oh well, she's left me, she's gone
She bid me goodbye
Oh well, she moving-moving along
Well, she left town on Sunday
With a man named Clay
Well listen, oh my baby
All he wanna do is play
Oh well, she'll leave him
Oh well, she'll leave him one day
She'll get all his money
And then leave him one day

Well, the last time I saw her
She had a drink in her hand
A mink around her shoulders
And her arm around a man
A-wearing pearls and diamond necklace
Hair like golden-golden sand
But her ruby-ruby lips
They were kissin' another man
Well, they tell me that my baby
Lives in another town
They tell me that she's married
And that she's settled down
Well, I'm happy for my baby
Well, I'm happy, oh yeah
Well, I'll just find me another baby
But I'll never settle down
Well, I'll just find me another baby
But I'll never settle down
Well, I'll just find me another baby
But I'll never settle down
