Benet, Eric - Pretty Baby Lyrics

Baby what you searching for
I'm pretty sure that you just don't know 'cause
You're looking with your body, not your head
You're brilliant and beautiful
But they don't see when they take you home 'cause
You're just another notch that's in their bed
Oh, oh pretty baby
Oh, oh pretty baby
(Why you wanna go and do that baby)

I can feel your emptiness, I can see it behind those eyes
Just waiting for the one who understands
(Someone who understands)
Though I'm nothing like the rest
I'm invisible because you're blind
Jaded and blinded to a chance
(To take a chance with me)
Oh, oh pretty baby
Oh, oh pretty baby
(oh, you're so beautiful, why you want to go and do that baby)

Don't lie to yourself
Don't let them inside while your heart keeps crying
Slow love for yourself
Discover your light where you you'll find me
(In the light)
Oh, oh pretty baby

    With everything being visual in these internet social media times THIS JOINT RIGHT HERE NEEDS TO BE HEARD COMPREHENDED BY THESE YOUNG FEMALES 💯💯 FACTS.

  36. wysta01

    So many of us young women need to understand what exactly he is saying. I was once there, giving my precious jewels to just any man because my heart was searching for love. It is embarrassing to admit but it is human, and this corrupt world can cause a lot of us to act in lust instead of love

  78. Julia V. Mitchell

    That's crazy how Halle Berry Divorce him because he had a sex addition wow!!! if he was she should of sit him down and talk to him and then go to marriage counseling just to help him. The only two reason I would divorce my husband if he was cheating on me and abusing me those are the grounds for divorce that's my opinion. Some married couples get divorce over silly reason, what GOD has join together should never break only till death do y'all apart yes call me old fashion I love when someone does that because that shows me my Great Grandmother did a good job raising me.


    lol sex addiction= cheating

  79. Julia V. Mitchell

    I feel in love just listen to this song when it came out

  80. Julia V. Mitchell

    I am a pretty baby everyone say girl you still a pretty baby and I am almost 49 this coming year, so I guess once I hit 50 I will still be the same or they would say girl you have some more living to do. But I love it when my older family members say that to me makes me feel very special

  91. Elaine Dudley

    nice song😊😊😊

  92. Raheem Hannah

    This song deserves more views

    Andre Caldwell

    Raheem Hannah just said the same thing before I saw this post.

    ricardo gaddis

    Was this song referencing his former Pretty Baby (Halle) about her controversial monsters ball performance?

    Dion Clark

    It's telling a truth.


    I was just thinking that. Not even at a million. What a shame

  93. Cam Bino

    this song puts my kids to sleep

  94. Adrienne Morgan

    I can't stop crying this song speaks volumes in my life

  95. Adrienne Morgan

    I can't stop crying this song speaks volumes in my life


    I know. I use to cry to this too sis. So many tears. The words are crazy and so true. I had to listen and learn.

    Jonathan Akerele

    +creamyreddred I cry to this song too because I often feel unworthy of the affection expressed in the lyrics. Growing up, I felt little empathy from my relatives and they seemed unwilling to relate personal struggles so I had a hard time dealing with being bullied at school and other issues like being forgetful and losing things. I tend to have panic attacks with stuff and feel no one understands me so I spend lots of my time alone.

    Julia V. Mitchell

    Jonathan Akerele Oh no sorry to hear that you had to go through something like that in your family let me tell you I was in church few years back and my Pastor said that family can be the worst I really did not understand why he said that till maybe few weeks ago GOD show me just what my Pastor was talking about because my first cousins was mad at me and I did not know why. SHE call me just to curse me out and call me out my name, that day I felt like I was not worth anything in this world and I also got it from another cousin but she wrote me a horrible letter so I said LORD what is going on with my family is it me or what? so I prayed for them and me and then I started which I always read my BIBLE but I was directed to read the whole book of Psalms starting at chapter 1 and every day by me reading that whole book I received strength and I received love💜from JESUS CHRIST and I felt so good. So I did not think about how my two first cousins felt about me because I knew who loves me unconditional and that's my HEAVENLY FATHER and no one or anything can take that from me. So if you are still going through your pain and if you have a BIBLE but first pray for your family and for yourself to overcome what's going on in your family GOD will take care of the rest just call out JESUS CHRIST name three times and then start reading the book of Psalms chapter 1 and read the whole book of Psalms you will see how GOD works in your life. I hope we can keep in touch through youtube I do have a Facebook account so if you want it let me know I LOVE💜YOU before I saw your message remember that. GOD BLESS YOU!!!😏

    Autumn Rain

    Your comment is so true but the crazy part is that Eric is so underrated he just doesn't get the credit or recognition he deserves which is why I love this song.
