You Call Everybody Darlin’ (1946)
(wm) Sam Martin, Ben Trace, and Clem Watts (I) Al Trace Orchestra. No. 1 chart record (CR) Andrews Sisters; Bob Vincent (R) 1957 Faron Young
You call everybody Darlin’, and everybody calls you Darlin’ too.
You don’t mean what you’re sayin’,
It’s just a game you’re playin’.
But you’ll find someone else can play the game as well as you.
If you call everybody Darlin’,
Then love won’t come a-knockin’ at your door (Nevermore).
And as the years go by, you’ll sit and wonder why
Nobody calls you Darlin’ anymore.
