I read about this baby she got beat up by her dad
She was nine months old and he was a full grown man
She may have been learning how to crawl and he put a fist in her face
And the doctor said this baby's gone she can't be replaced
Now you read a lot of things in the daily news
But I'm laying awake at nights wondering what to do
I pray the Lord her soul to keep cause all down here are fast asleep
But I want to say this baby belongs to me and you
So we gotta wake up this baby belongs to me and you
[ guitar ]
Everyday when I wake up in this world and it's spinning out of control
Who's at the wheel seems no one knows
We're all just like a baby frightened and so sad
Feeling beat up by someone who looks like dad
Now you read a lot of things...
So we gotta wake up this baby belongs to me and you
