Lyrics

I had a baby,
And he looks just like me,
A bald-headed baby.
He's been the makings of me.
His eyes are so blue, just like you,
But you haven't seen him.
I don't know what to tell him,
I don't know what to tell him.
I had a thing with
A man who wasn't mine to be with.
I woke up one June day
With him up inside me, ay!
And it excited me,
And I was crazy;
I was always crazy.
But I had a baby,
So I'm never sorry.
He's been the makings of me.
When he asks, I tell him
That you love him,
But you can't be here
And when he says why,
I say I don't know why,
Because I don't know why
He should suffer instead of me
Over shit that's because of me.
Oh, I wish it wasn't so crazy
Broke my mind this this day.
But I had a baby,
So beautiful, he.
He's been the makings of me.
I had a fling with
A man who wasn't mine to be with.
I woke up one June day
With him up inside me, ay!
And it excited me,
And I was crazy;
I was always crazy.
