betty & dupree lyrics – chuck willis

gather round me, everybody
i’m gonna tell you a story
about betty and dupree

betty told dupree
i want a diamond ring
lord, betty told dupree
i want a diamond ring

dupree told betty
i will buy you anything

dupree aked betty
girl, will you be my wife
dupree aked betty
girl, will you be my wife

if i buy you that ring
you’re mine the rest of your life

yes, baby

lord, betty told dupree
yes, i will be your wife
you know betty told dupree
baby, i will be your wife

he said, you will, pretty baby
i’m yours the rest of my life
