Do you call your lover "baby"? Is that a subliminal urge to procreate? Baby this...Baby that...hey who are you talking to man?!


Baby’s Got The Blues © Roo Friend APRA 2017

I was born the other day, came into this noisy world
Daddy said it’s a boy, when I sure as hell ain’t no little girl
Then they took me from my mama
Wrapped me so tight I couldn’t move
No wonder I get so angry I’m a baby with the blues
I’m a baby with the blues
Baby baby baby
I’m a baby with the blues

This little piggy went to market…leave my toes alone!
If I hear that rhyme just one more time, I’m gonna crawl away from home
Leave me in a dirty nappy! And how about a pair of shoes?
No wonder I get so angry I’m a baby with the blues


Daddy said we had to go to the doctor to get a prescription filled
Got stuck with a dirty great needle it’s lucky I wasn’t killed
But I got my own back later on
Kept ‘em both up half the night
They were so ratty in the morning
They had a terrible fight but I don’t care…
I’m a baby with the blues


Now every baby’s different
No one is like another
When I was born I was so ugly
The doctor slapped my mother!
So here’s a little question I’m a askin you
If you ever were a baby
Did you ever get the blues?
