Welcome to Retroville! It's 1961!
In 1961, Bobby Vee recorded Take Good Care of My Baby. The song peaked on Billboard's charts at number one, and captured a spot in the top twenty for 1961. With words and music by Gerry Goffin and Carole King, the song has become a favorite for lovers of all ages.

The Lyrics:

My tears are fallin' 'cause you've taken her away
And though it really hurts me so
There's something that I've gotta say

Take good care of my ba-a-a-by
Please don't ever make her blu-u-u-ue
Just tell her that you love her
Make sure you're thinking of her
In everything you say and do-o-o-o

Aww, take good care of my ba-a-a-by
Now don't you ever make her cry-y-y-y
Just let your love surround her
Paint a rainbow all around her
Don't let her see a cloudy sky

Once upon a time that little girl was mine
If I'd been true, I know she'd never be with you

So, take good care of my ba-a-a-by
Be just as kind as you can be-e-e-e
And if you should discover
That you don't really love her
Just send my baby back home to me

Well, take good care of my ba-a-a-by
Be just as kind as you can be-e-e-e
And if you should discover
That you don't really love her
Just send my baby back home to me

Aww, take good care of my ba-a-a-by
Well, take good care of my ba-a-a-by
Just, take good care of my ba-a-a-by
