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
