Maybe it's only - 'cause I'm so poor
That you don't count me - anymore
Maybe I'm tryin' to compare
Take my picture - don't you dare
Maybe it's only - 'cause I fall
I'm so much closer - but yer so tall
But I'm no baby - I ain't no child
I'll get to bed soon - in awhile
Hear me crawlin' down your stairs
Count your children - don't be scared
My wooden floor is awful bare
But you can't take me - I'm not there
'cause I'm screamin' - 'cause I'm tired
I'm a little bit lonesome, I'm not so dire
But I'm no baby - I'm no child
I'll get in bed now - just for awhile
Hear me callin' down your stairs
Count your babies - one's not there
One's not there
