PAPER BACK BOOKS

Paper back books, paper back books
My baby's hung up on paperback books
And that's bad and that's bad and that's bad
And that's bad and that's bad and that's bad
I keep sittin' 'round and thinkin' 'bout the little girl I used to have
And that's bad

She takes the money daddy gives her for lunch
And takes and spends it on a piece of junk
Like paper back books and that's bad
Paper back books and that's bad
I keep sittin' 'round and thinkin' 'bout the little girl I used to have
And that's bad

I taught her how to kiss from the start
And now she's learnin' how to break my heart, out of them
Paper back books and that's bad
Paper back books and that's bad
I keep sittin' 'round and thinkin' 'bout the little girl I used to have
And that's bad

Paper back books, paper back books
My baby's hung up on paperback books ...

Oh, how my baby, well-a she has changed
She says she learned it from Mickey Spillaine, and his
Paper back books and that's bad
Paper back books and that's bad
I keep sittin' 'round and thinkin' 'bout the little girl I used to have
And that's bad

Paper back books, paper back books
My baby's hung up on paperback books ...
