Verse:
I burned up ev -'ry let -ter, And thought that I'd feel bet -ter,
I put a -way her pic -ture too.
Sent back each lit -tle pre -sent, And tho' it was -n't pleas -ant,
It seemed the wis -est thing to do.
I've done ev -'ry -thing I could and yet,
It is -n't ve -ry ea -sy to for -get.
 
First Chorus:
I won -der where my ba -by is to -night,
I won -der how my ba -by is to -night,
I won -der where she's gone, And how she's get -ting on,
I won -der why my ba -by does -n't write.
If she came back I won -der what I'd do,
I won -der did she find some -bod -y new,
She did -n't treat me fair, And tho' I should -n't care,
I won -der where my ba -by is to -night.
 
Second "Charleston" Chorus:
I won -der does my ba -by do the Charles -ton, Charles -ton,
I won -der who is teach -ing her the Charles -ton, Charles -ton,
While I sit and sigh the time goes drag -gin' by,
I'd like to kill the guy who wrote the Charles -ton, Charles -ton.
We part -ed 'cause I could -n't do the Charles -ton, Charles -ton,
She'd still be here if I could do the Charles -ton, Charles -ton,
I'm tak -in' les -sons now, I'll win her back some -how,
I won -der where my ba -by is to -night.
