Baby Game

She was so sweet once, she was innocent
Now she's a cribcase, it's all very disgusting
She fell in love but she fell out again
She cries for her milk when she should be eating

She's helpless, she plays the baby game
She plays the baby game, she plays the baby game
She's going nowhere, she's staying the same

Little birds are helpless, way up in the tree
They cry for mother almost constantly
But little birds must one day take their wing
I told her this, she threw her rattle at me

She's helpless, she plays the baby game
She plays the baby game, she plays the baby game
She's going nowhere, she's staying the same

She keeps on crying, it should be for shame
Talks her gibberish, can't say her name
No direction purpose or aim
When she ought to be walking, she's acting so lame

She plays the baby game, she plays the baby game
She plays the baby game

I'll do my best, I'll let her lean on me
With some encouragement, maybe I'll reach her
I can still love her, treat her tenderly
I'll take it slowly, there's so much to teach her

She plays the baby game, she plays the baby game
She plays the baby game
