James Taylor - Daddy's Baby Lyrics




Daddy's baby, what's got you thinking? What's got you sinking so low?
Is there something I should know, something new to you?

Daddy's baby fussing and fretting, keeping on getting it wrong.
She can only last so long , so sing her a lullaby-bye.
Baby don't like to cry, so sing her a lullaby-bye.
Swaddle and swing her, sing her a lullaby.

She makes her feelings known to me, her every side is shown to me.
And in our time alone, our love has surely grown of its own.
Silent as a stepping stone, silently as the dawn was breaking,
soft and clear and my tears were dry,
and my tears had flown so I called my love my home.

    Daddy's baby, what's got you thinking? What's got you sinking so low?
    Is there something I should know, something new to you?

    Daddy's baby fussing and fretting, keeping on getting it wrong.
    She can only last so long , so sing her a lullaby-bye.
    Baby don't like to cry, so sing her a lullaby-bye.
    Swaddle and swing her, sing her a lullaby.

    She makes her feelings known to me, her every side is shown to me.
    And in our time alone, our love has surely grown of its own.
    Silent as a stepping stone, silently as the dawn was breaking,
    soft and clear and my tears were dry,
    and my tears had flown so I called my love my home.

    Susan, thank you for posting this. The memories are bitter-sweet. I sang it as a lullaby once to the little girl who was to be my stepdaughter, back in happier days in the winter of 1991.
