Robbin' the Cradle
Tony Bellus Lyrics


A broken heart is why
I sing this song to you
So you and all the
World would know
Why I have let you go

(CHORUS)
They say I'm robbing
The cradle, little darling
Because I've fallen
In love with you
They say I'm robbing
The cradle, little darling
Is it strange for
True love to be so young

Well, everybody says
That you've got blue eyes
But your eyes are
Really brown like mine

Well, everybody says
That you're unhappy
But, with me, you
Really look so fine

(CHORUS)

Well, they all say
That I'm outta line
Cause I want to make you mine

But what very few people know
That we planned
Everything just so

(CHORUS)

Is it strange for
True love to be so young

A broken heart is why
I sing this song to you
So you and all the world would know
Why I have let you go

They say I'm robbin the cradle, little darlin
Because I've fallen in love with you
They say I'm robbin the cradle, little darlin
Is it strange for true love to be so young

Well, everybody says that you've got blue eyes
But your eyes are really brown like mine
Well, everybody says that you're unhappy
But, with me, you really look so fine

They say I'm robbin the cradle, little darlin
Because I've fallen in love with you
They say I'm robbin the cradle, little darlin
Is it strange for true love to be so young

Well, they all say that I'm outta line
'Cause I want to make you mine
But what very few people know
That we planned everything just so

They say I'm robbin the cradle, little darlin
Because I've fallen in love with you
They say I'm robbin the cradle, little darlin
Is it strange for true love to be so young
Is it strange for true love to be so young

On this day in 1959 {April 20th} Tony Bellus performed "Robbin' The Cradle" on the Dick Clark ABC-TV weekday-afternoon program, 'American Bandstand'...
One week later on April 27th the song entered Billboard's Top 100 chart at position #87, sixteen weeks later it would peak at #25 {for 1 week} and it spent a half-year on the Top 100 {26 weeks}...
Tony Bellus, born Anthony J. Bellusci, celebrated his 82nd birthday three days ago on April 17th {2018}...
And from the 'For What It's Worth' department, on the day of Tony's appearance on 'Bandstand', exactly one year later on April 20th, 1960 there was another 'Cradle' record on the Top 100, Johnny Preston's "Cradle of Love" was at #14, two weeks later it would peak at #7 {for 1 week} and it stayed on the Top 100 for fifteen weeks...

I wrote a song about a year after this came out...it just now dawned on me where I got the melody...shades of George Harrison!
