  Basement of Gerde's Folk City, NYC - 8.feb.1963  

Well, if i had to do it all over again
Babe, i'd do it all over you
If i had to wait for a thousand years
Babe, i'd even do that too
Well, a dog's got his bone in the alley
A cat she's got nine lives
A millionnaire has got a million dollars
King Saul's got four hundred wives
Well, everybody's got somethin'
That they're lookin' forward to
I'm lookin' forward to when i can do it all again
Sweet babe, i'll do it all over you.

Well, if i had my way tomorrow or today
Babe, i'd run circles all around
I'd jump up in the wind, do a somersault and spin
Babe, i'd dance a jig on the ground
Well, everybody has their hour
Everybody has their their time
Even little David when he picked his pebbles
Even Sampson after he went blind
Well, everybody gets their chance
To do what they want to do
When my time arrives you better run for your life
Sweet babe, i'll do it all over you.

Well... i'm just waitin' at your gate so that i won't be late
Babe, when my, when my chance comes around
Look out your window fair, you'll see me squattin' there
Just a-mumblin' an'a-stumblin' all around
Well, after my cigarette's been smoked up
After my liquor's been drunk
After all my dreams are dreamed out
After all my thoughts have been thunk
Well after i do some of these things
Then i'm gonna do what i have to do
An' i tell you on the side that you'd better run an' hide
Babe, i'll do it all over you
An' i tell you on the side that you'd better run 'n' hide
'Cause babe, i'll do it all over you.  up

Well, if i had to do it all over again
Babe, i'd do it all over you
And if i had to wait for a thousand years
Babe, i'd even do that too
Well a dog's got his bone in the alley
A cat she's got nine lives
A millionnaire's got a million dollars
King Saul's got four hundred wives
Well, everybody's got somethin'
That they're lookin' forward to
I'm lookin' forward to when i can do it all again
And babe, i'll do it all over you.

Well, if i had my way tomorrow or today
Babe, i'd run circles all around
I'd jump up in the wind, do a somersault and spin
I'd even dance a jig on the ground
Well, everybody gets their hour
Everybody gets their time
Even little David when he picked his pebbles
Even Sampson after he went blind
Well, everybody gets their chance
To do what they want to do
When my time arrives, you better run for your life
'Cause babe, i'll do it all over you.

Well, i don't need no money, i just need a day that's sunny
Baby and my days a-gonna come
And i grab me a pint, you know that i'm a giant
When you hear me yellin', "Fee-fi-fo-fum''
Well, you cut me like a jigsaw puzzle
You made me to a walkin' wreck
Then you pushed my heart through my backbone
Then you knocked off my head from my neck
Well, if i'm ever standin' steady
A-doin' what i want to do
Well, i tell you little lover that you better run for cover
'Cause babe, i'll do it all over you

I'm just restin' at your gate so that i won't be late
Mama, i'm a-just sittin' on the shelf
Look out your window fair, you'll see me squattin' there 
Just a-fumblin' an' a-mumblin' to myself
Well, after my cigarette's been smoked up
After my liquor's been drunk
After my dreams are dreamed out
After my thoughts have been thunk
Well, after i do some of these things
I'm gonna do what i have to do
An' i tell you on the side that you'd better run 'n' hide
'Cause babe, i'll do it all over you.  up

Well, if i had to do it all over again
Babe i'd do it all over you
If i had to wait for 10,000 years
Babe, i'd even do that too
Well a dog's got his bone in the alley
A cat she's got nine lives
A millionnaire's got a million dollars
and King Saul's got four hundred wives
Well everybody's got somethin'
That they're lookin' forward to
I'm lookin' forward to when i can do it all again
Babe i'll do it all over you.

Well if i had my way tomorrow or today
Babe i'd run circles all around
I'd jump up in the wind, do a somersault and spin
I'd even dance a jig on the ground
Well ... everybody gets their hour
Everybody gets their time
Little David when he picked his pebbles
Even Sampson after he went blind
Well everybody gets their chance
To do what they want to do
When my time arrives, you better run for your life
Oh babe i'll do it all over you.

Well i don't need no money, i just need a day that's sunny
Mama and my days a-gonna come
And i grab me a pint, you think that i'm a giant
When you hear me yellin', ''Fee-fi-fo-fum''
You cut me like a jigsaw puzzle
You made me to a walkin' wreck
When you pushed my heart through my backbone
And you knocked off my head from my neck
Well if i'm never put back together
Ah babe i'll tell what i'm gonna do
I tell you little lover that you better run for cover
Oh babe i'll do it all over you

Look out your window fair, you'll see me squattin' there 
Mama, i'm just wrestlin' on my shelf
I'll be all by myself, i don't need nobody else
When i come on ???? off to myself
Well, after my cigarette's been smoked up
After all my liquor's been drunk
After all my dreams are dreamed out
After all my thoughts have been thunk
Well after i do some of these things
I'm gonna do what i have to do
An' i tell you on the side that you'd better run 'n' hide
'Cause babe i'll do it all over you.  up
