RO-LY PO-LY

by Henry Glover, Joey Dee, and Morris Levy


I know you got a lover and she treats you good,
But she ain't a-treatin' you like I could,
I don't want to rob and I don't want to steal,
But if I don't getcha' my best friend will!

     RO-LY PO-LY, RO-LY PO-LY,
     You're the apple of my eye,
     RO-LY PO-LY, RO-LY PO-LY,
     Let me be your sweety pie!

I heard you have some money and you keep it hid,
And you've been saving money since you were a kid,
Listen to me daddy, 'cause I'm tellin' you how,
If you don't know how to spend it, betcha I can show you how!

     RO-LY PO-LY, RO-LY PO-LY,
     You're the apple of my eye,
     RO-LY PO-LY, RO-LY PO-LY,
     Let me be your sweety pie!

I know you're kind of heavy but what can I do,
And people will be laughin' when they see me out with you,
Now I don't mind 'em talkin' and I don't care what they say,
I just wanna getcha' 'cause I love you that way!

     RO-LY PO-LY, RO-LY PO-LY,
     You're the apple of my eye,
     RO-LY PO-LY, RO-LY PO-LY,
     Let me be your sweety pie!
