Filipino Baby 
Lloyd 'Cowboy' Copas 
1946 King Records Inc. Nashville, TN. 
Transcriber: Awcantor@aol.com 
 
When the warship left Manila  
Sailing proudly o'er the sea, deep blue sea Ê 
All the sailor's hearts were filled with fond regret  
 
Looking backward to this island  
Where they'd spent such happy hours, happy hours  
Makin' love to every pretty girl they met  
  
When up stepped a little sailor 
With his bright eyes all aglow, all aglow  
Sayin', 'Take a look at my gal's photograph' Ê 
 
Then the sailors gathered 'round him  
Just to look upon her face, smilin' face  
And he said, 'I love my dark-faced, Filipino' Ê 
 
She's my Filipino baby  
She's my treasure and my pet, lovin' pet  
Her teeth are bright n' pearly Ê 
And her hair is black as jet  
 
Oh, her lips are sweet as honey  
And her heart is pure I know, yes I know  
And he said, 'I love my dark faced Filipino' Ê 
 
 
 
Then one day he whispered, 'Darlin', 
I'll come back from Caroline, South Caroline 
I'll come back to claim the only girl I love 
 
And that night there was a wedding 
While the ship's crew gathered 'round, all around 
And he wed his little dark-faced Filipino 
 
She's my Filipino baby 
She's my treasure, she's my pet, lovin' pet 
You bet! 
 
And her teeth are bright an' pearly 
And her hair is black as jet 
Oh her lips are sweet as honey 
And her heart is pure, I know, yes I know  
Pure as snow! 
 
And he said, 'I love my dark faced Filipino'
