My baby wakes in the deep of the night

My baby digs him 'cause I'm rolling away
D        A          D  A     E
My baby gives it up everyday.
My baby gives it, she gives it away
My baby gives it up everyday.
My baby, she just gives it away

When you're alone in some city hotel
You can get comforted by ringing a bell
You might go pick up a girl on the street
Well, my baby gives it up totally free
My baby's counting won't cause you alarm
My baby's brother never break-a your arm
My baby, ha ha, I love her

She's cheap

[repeat intro]
Oh...yeah

My baby, my baby, my baby...

A                                          D A
You better buy yourself a new pair of shoes

And walk for a lifetime on the page you knew
You better buy yourself an electric guitar
           G                      D               E
You better play, there's no other way to beat the blues

I beat 'em
My baby...

My baby, she gives it away
Everyday, every way, my baby just gives it away

My baby's mama is a singular girl
She brought up her daughter and she brought her up well
I'm breathing no more 'cause she took it away
My baby gives it up everyday
My baby gives it, she gives it away
My baby gives it up everyday
My baby.....
I love her, yeah

My baby, my baby, she just gives it away...
My baby gives it up everyday
My baby gives it, just gives it away
