Childish Gambino – Baby Boy Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Little hands, little feet
Tiny heart, tiny beat
Oh, thinkin’ about the time we spent falling in love, in love
I don’t wanna leave you, I don’t want him to see you
But oh, when mama cries from daddy’s lies
Oh my, please don’t take him away, no, no, no
Don’t take him away

[Chorus]
Oh, ’cause I had my doubts, oh!
Don’t take my baby boy
Don’t take my pride and joy
I hope I stay close, I hope I stay close

[Verse 2]
All the pain, all the tears
Many nights, many years
This love for me is fading
You waited, but I never came home to you
I’ve never lied about us
We were never supposed to be together
When you see me with some other one
And they know your son
Oh, please don’t take him away
You said you won’t but you will

[Chorus]
Oh, ’cause I had my doubts, oh!
Don’t take my baby boy
Don’t take my pride and joy
I hope I stay close, I hope I stay close

[Outro]
There was a time before you
And there will be a time after you
Though these bodies are not at home
Walk tall, little one, walk tall
Let me hold you, let me hold you
