Lyrics

Chunga's Revenge version

I'm cryin'
I'm cryin'
Cryin' for Sharleena,
Don't you know?
I called up all my baby's friends
'N ask'n um
Where she done went
But nobody 'round here seems to know
Where my Sharleena's been
Where my Sharleena's been

I'm cryin'
I'm cryin'
Cryin' for Sharleena,
Can't you see?
I called up all my baby's friends
'N ask'n um
Where she done went
But nobody 'round here seems to know
Where my Sharleena's been
Where my Sharleena's been

Ten long years I been lov'n her
Ten long years
And I thought deep down in my heart
She was mine
Ten long years I been lov'n her
Ten long years
I would call her my baby, and now,
I'm always cryin'

Ugh!
Ugh!

I would be so delighted
I would be so delighted
If they would just
Send her on home to me

I would be so delighted
I would be so delighted
If they would just
Send her on home to me
Send my baby home to me!
Send my baby home to me!
Send my baby ho-oo-ome!
Send my baby home to me!

Them Or Us version


I'm cryin'
I'm cryin'
Cryin' for Sharleena,
Can't you see

I called up all my baby's friends
'N ask'n um
Where she done went.
But nobody 'round here seems to know
Where my Sharleena's been
Where my Sharleena's been

Ten long years I've been lovin' her
Ten long years
And I thought deep down in my heart
She was mine
Ten long years I've been lovin' her
Ten long years
I would call her my baby, and now,
I'm always cryin'

UH . . . COOH . . .

I would be so delighted
(I would be)
I would be so delighted
(Yes, I would be)
If they would just
Send her on home to me

I would be so delighted
(I . . . )
I would be so delighted
(Yeah-he-ey)
If they would just
Send her on home to me
Send my baby home to me
Send my baby home to me
Send my baby home to me
Send my baby home to
Me-ee-ee-ee
