The Lyrics

"I Gotta Know" was the much-underrated flip side of the 1960 Number 1 hit "Are You Lonesome Tonight," written by Paul Evans, who sang "Seven Little Girls" and had the highest-charting version of "The Midnight Special." Something tells me Malcolm Higgins will like this one.
I get up in the morning, feeling not so neat.
A-sloshing and a-squirming, I got soaking sheets.
Looks like I didn't learn my lesson.
(Shoo-be-doo-be-da-wa.)
My mattress I've been messin'.
(Shoo-be-doo-be-da-wa.)
Bathroom late at night or don't you know?
I gotta go, gotta go, gotta go.

Jump into the shower, cleaning off the smell.
Getting dressed and out, going off to work like hell.
I got me work to last a while.
(Shoo-be-doo-be-da-wa.)
It's not my only pile.
(Shoo-be-doo-be-da-wa.)
Got to lose this feeling way down low.
I gotta go, gotta go, gotta go.

Oh, how much I need to
get empty these old guts of mine.
But if you say you'll fix my plumbing true
I'll be your one and only ‘til the end of time.

I saw a brand-new girlfriend, and this is what she said:
“You better not be one of those guys who wets the bed!”
That's why I'm lonesome and I'm lovesick.
(Shoo-be-doo-be-da-wa.)
She'll think that I'm a dipstick.
(Shoo-be-doo-be-da-wa.)
Wake me up at quarter after fo'!
I gotta go, gotta go, gotta go!

Oh, how much I need to
get empty these old guts of mine.
But if you say you'll fix my plumbing true
I'll be your one and only ‘til the end of time.

I saw a brand-new girlfriend, and this is what she said:
“You better not be one of those guys who wets the bed!”
That's why I'm lonesome and I'm lovesick.
(Shoo-be-doo-be-da-wa.)
Don't sleep with loaded dipstick.
(Shoo-be-doo-be-da-wa.)
So wake me up at quarter after fo'!
I gotta go, gotta go, gotta go!
I gotta go, gotta go, gotta go!
I gotta go, gotta go, gotta go!
(repeat ‘til fade)
