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
And as the years go by
You’ll sit and wonder why
Nobody calls you Darlin’ anymore

(You call everybody Darling
And everybody calls you Darling too
No, no, no, 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 Darling
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 Darling anymore)

You call everybody (what?) Darlin’ (Oh, dear me, yes)
And everybody calls you Darlin’ too (how many times in the day do I say)
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 (maybe
Better)
If you call everybody (what?) Darlin’
Then love won’t come a-knockin’ at your door
Who’s there? (not love)
And as the years go by
You’ll sit and wonder why
Nobody calls you Darlin’ anymore
