When you see me smile
I'm smiling for my baby
When you hear me sigh
I'm sighing for my baby

When I step out
As sharp as a tack
The girls whistle at me
But I don't look back
Cause everything I do
I do it for my baby

And every time I dream
I dream about my baby
And every time I scheme
I'm scheming for my baby

I know my baby
She's never hard to find
Because she's always on my mind
And everything I do, so help me
I do it for my baby

My baby, she's something else
Let me tell you, she's fine
I'm glad I belong to her
And she's mine, all mine

Every vow I make
I make it for my baby
And every dime I take
Oh, I just take em for my baby

Now when you see us
Strolling down the avenue
Just keep your eyes
Off you know who
Cause everything I do
Oh, I do it for my baby

When you see me walking alone
Trying to make it to my baby
When you hear me singing a song
I'm just singing for my baby
