The Civil War: All In One

   Baby's In Black
by John T. Marck



Baby's In Black

This song is unique in that it is a true Lennon and McCartney collaboration, the first since "I Want To Hold Your Hand." Its story is quite basic, whereas the boy loves a girl, this girl loves another boy, and this other boy doesn't love the girl, so the girl dresses in black. By this time, Lennon and McCartney seldom sat in the same room to wrote a song, but this time on this one, they did. It also was the first song recorded for this album, on August 11, 1964. Quite a good song!

Oh dear, what can I do,

baby's in black and I'm feeling blue

Tell me, oh, what can I do?

She thinks of him,

and so she dresses in black

And though he'll never come back,

she's dressed in black

Oh, dear, what can I do,

baby's in black and I'm feeling blue

Tell me oh, what can I do?

I think of her, but she thinks only of him,

and though it's only a whim,

She thinks of him

Oh, how long will it take,

till she sees the mistake she has made

Dear, what can I do,

baby's in black and I'm feeling blue

Tell me oh, what can I do?

Oh, how long will it take,

till she sees the mistake she has made

Dear, what can I do,

baby's in black and I'm feeling blue

Tell me oh, what can I do?

She thinks of him,

and so she dresses in black

And though he'll never come back,

she's dressed in black

Oh, dear what can I do,

baby's in black and I'm feeling blue

Tell me oh, what can I do?
