If I Knew You Were Comin I'd've Baked a Cake

Eileen Barton

Well, well
Hello John, look who's here

I have't seen you in many a year

If I knew you were comin' I'd 've baked a cake
Baked a cake, baked a cake
If I knew you were comin' I'd 've baked a cake
How to do? How to do? How to do?

Had you dropped me a letter I'd've hired a band
Grandest band in the land
Had you dropped me a letter I'd've hired a band
And spread the welcome mat for you

Now I don't know where you came from
'Cause I don't know where you've been
But it really doesn't matter
Grab a chair and fill your platter
And dig dig dig right in

If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake
Hired a band, goodness sake
If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake
How to do? How to do? How to do?

If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake
Baked a cake, baked a cake
If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake
How to do? How to do? How to do?

Had you dropped me a letter I'd've hired a hall
Great big hall, band and all
Had you dropped me a letter I'd've hired a hall
And spread the welcome mat for you

Now I don't know where you came from
'Cause I don't know where you've been
But it really doesn't matter
Grab a chair and fill your platter
And dig dig dig right in

If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake
Hired a band, goodness sake
If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake
How to do? How to do? How to do?
