"Everybody's Trying to Be My Baby" as written by and Carl Lee Perkins....
Well they took some honey from a tree
Dressed it up and they called it me

Everybody's trying to be my baby
Everybody's trying to be my baby
Everybody's trying to be my baby, now

Well half past nine, half past four
Fifty women knocking on my door

Everybody's trying to be my baby
Everybody's trying to be my baby
Everybody's trying to be my baby, now

Went out last night, I didn't stay late
'Fore I got home I had nineteen dates

Everybody's trying to be my baby
Everybody's trying to be my baby
Everybody's trying to be my baby, now

Went out last night, I didn't stay late
'Fore I got home I had nineteen dates

Well they took some honey from a tree
Dressed it up and they called it me

Everybody's trying to be my baby
Everybody's trying to be my baby
Everybody's trying to be my baby, no

    General CommentI think that if the case was that he was married when he wrote this, it would be better, but thats not the case? I don't know alot about the beatles history.

    General CommentI just have trouble with this song. It's like, the whole song is this guy complaining that too many women are attracted to him. Well, sorry if I don't shed a tear. It's equivalent to someone singing a song "Woe is me, I've got so much money, and I don't know what to do with it"
