Cradle rock..
If I was a cradle, then you'd let me rock.
If I was a pony, then you'd let me trot.
If I was the atom, you'd split me into three.
But when I want to see you baby,
How come you lock your door on me!

If I was a baby, you wouldn't let me fall.
If I was an outlaw, you wouldn't have me caught.
If I was a tiger, you wouldn't have me caged.
If I was somebody else,
Then you would act your age!

You'll miss out if you, leave me out of your,
Day and night, I been trying to make you see that.
Hear what I got to say,
It's all about me and you!

If I was a blind-man, then you'd make me see.
If I was a deaf-man, you'd give me ears to hear.
If I was a lame-man, you'd give me legs to walk.
But if you were true to me baby,
Then listen when I talk.

If I was a cradle, then you'd let me rock,
If I was a pony, then you'd let me trot.
If I was the atom, split me into three.
If I want to see you baby,
Don't you lock your door on me
