I Want To Be Somebody's Baby

I Want To Be Somebody's Baby

Barry Manilow

I wanna be somebody's baby
I don't want a child of my own
I was the one who was always strong
And I was always the one left alone
I was the one understandin'
And lettin' the other go free
Now I wanna be somebody's baby
Let somebody worry 'bout me

Who,no, no, no more a shoulder to cry on
My shoulders are wet to the bone
No, no, no more a friend to rely on
I'm looking for friends of my own
No more a kindly adviser
And no more a worshiping fan
I'm younger and weaker and wiser
With a brand new strategy planned

I wanna be somebody's baby
I don't want a child of my own
Who, I was the one who was always strong
And I was always the one left alone
I was the one understandin'
And lettin' the other go free
Right now I wanna be somebody's baby
Let somebody worry 'bout me

I wanna be mothered and fathered
And sistered and bothered
It's gonna be gruesome and grand
I swear I'll keep you worried and sweatin'
And busy and bothered
You'll run around wringin' your hands

I'll call you at three in the mornin'
Wailin' my woes to the sky
I'll slip out of sight without warnin'
And return with a gleam in my eye

I wanna be somebody's baby
I don't want a child of my own
Who, I was the one who was always strong
And I was always the one left alone
I was the one understandin'
And lettin' the other go free
Right now I wanna be somebody's baby
Let somebody worry 'bout me
