about

Written 15 years ago, when I was in my late 20s, this song speaks for itself.

lyrics

I just wanna a baby child
Even if it’s cryin, my baby
My bright eyed baby child
Soon as I find a good lovin man
Soon as I find a good lovin man

Been seventeen years I was still a single girl
Been seventeen years still a single girl
Been seventeen years still a single girl
Wonderin where to roam in this wild world
Wonderin where to roam in this wild world

Moved into town looking for a partner
Moved into town looking for a partner
Moved into town looking for a partner
Five years later, still a single girl
Five years later, still a single girl

I’ve got some time I’ve got some money…
Could spend them both on a brand new baby
Spend them both on a brand new baby

I eat I eat no other soul to feed
Eat and eat no other soul to feed…
Dreamin of a family table…

I just want a baby child
Even if it’s crying my baby
My bright eyed baby child
soon as I find a good lovin man
soon as I find a good lovin man
