When I was born My mother died She said,'Bye bye, baby, bye bye I said,'Where you goin'? I'm just born She said,'I'll only be gone for a while' My mother loved to leave in style That's why God made the movies
Well, I laid around In my swaddling clothes Until the doctor came and turned out the lights Then I packed my bag And my name tag I stole away into the night Hoping things would work out right That's why God made the movies
Say you will! Say you will! Say you'll take me to your lovin' breast Say you'll nourish me With your tenderness The way the ladies sometimes do Say you won't! Say you won't! Say you won't leave me for no other man Say you'll love me just the way I am Say you will baby, now Say you will, just say you will
When I was born My mother died She said,'Bye bye, baby, bye bye And since that day I've paid my way The notorious boy of the wild Adopted by the wolves When he was a child.
That's why God That's why God That's why God made the movies
