You Were Somebody's Baby

From the album Other Songs

You were somebody's baby

A long, long time ago

When you wet yourself, they dried you

When y'cried they brought the bottle, that satisfied you

You were somebody's baby,

But baby where's that bottle now?

 

You were somebody's baby

A long, long time ago

When you started walkin' someone held out their hand

Now you're on your own, and you can hardly stand, oh

You were somebody's baby,

But baby where's that hand-out now?

 

You were somebody's baby

A long, long time ago

You were "just- as" cute as a pea

You were "just-as" warm and "just-as" happy, "just-as" you

     should be,  oh

You were somebody's baby,

But baby where's that "just-ice" now?

 

You were somebody's baby

A long, long time ago

Someone used to hug and hold you

And smother you with kisses, they'd never scold you, yasss

You were somebody's baby,

But baby where's that somebody now?!!
