Bombs are dropping, smoke fills the air
I wanna duck and cover but i've gotta stay out here
'cause i know myself and if i hole up in my room
I'll be consumed by the doom and the gloom

So i called john 'cause i know he knows sorrow
He said "i'll be in the city tomorrow"
So i go down and i watch him sing
And the way he sings sends a chill right through me, yeah

And now there's a mountain goat
Precariously balanced on the frog stuck in my throat
It says "sometimes whispering's okay,
But maybe you'd feel better if you screamed today"

The lady took the baby
I know she loves the baby
But the baby has a daddy
And his daddy loves him too
How could she take the baby?
Maybe she's gone crazy
She won't share
It's not fair
There's nothing i can do

The lady took the baby
I know she loves the baby
But the baby has a daddy
And his daddy loves him too
How could she take the baby?
Maybe she's gone crazy
She won't share
It's not fair
There's nothing i can do

Tuesday night grandma curled up in my bed
By wednesday morning my grandma was dead
I was in charlotte, i took the bus home
Her shoes, watch, and teeth were still in my room

And as i lay me down to sleep i felt her spirit rise up through me
She said "i got to live a long eighty six years, dry your tears.
I know it's hard but please let go so i can meet your grandpa in the undertow
Chin up girl, you've got to be strong, and know when you're singing i'm singing along"

The lady took the baby
I know she loves the baby
But the baby has a daddy
And his daddy loves him too
How could she take the baby?
Maybe she's gone crazy
She won't share
It's not fair
There's nothing i can do

The lady took the baby
I know she loves the baby
But the baby has a daddy
And his daddy loves him too
How could she take the baby?
Maybe she's gone crazy
She won't share
It's not fair
There's nothing i can do

Little bitty baby so far away
We hope that you can come home soon
When we're not together, now or ever
Always remember i love you

Little bitty baby so far away
We hope that you can come home soon
When we're not together, now or ever
Always remember i love you
