Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby

song

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

Woke up last night, 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

(Instrumental/solo)

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

(Instrumental/solo)

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

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

"Everybody's Trying to Be My Baby" is a 1957 song written by Carl Perkins and originally released on the Sun Dance Album of ... Carl Perkins. It borrows from a song with the same title written in the mid-1930s by Alabama-born country songwriter Rex Griffin. Griffin recorded the song for Decca Records in 1936 under the title "Everybody's Tryin' To Be My Baby". Roy Newman and His Boys recorded a song with the same title in 1938. Rockabilly musician Carl Perkins recorded his song with the same title with similar music but an updated arrangement in 1956 for Sun Records. The Perkins song was featured on the 1957 Sun LP Dance Album of Carl Perkins, 1225, which was also released in the UK on London. The album was later re-released as Teen Beat: The Best of Carl Perkins. Perkins' recording was subsequently covered by The Beatles in 1964. The Beatles' recording, the best known version of the song, is attributed to Carl Perkins. Lyrically, the Perkins and Griffin songs are similar, but musically, the arrangement is more modern. The melody, later used in Rock Around the Clock, was also borrowed by Hank Williams for Move It On Over and Mind Your Own Business. The Carl Perkins song is more blues-based and closer to "Blue Suede Shoes" in style.
