Lyrics 

(Musixmatch)

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
