Original video
Oh, you said you were my baby
Now, I know that you're my baby
But it seems to me that you got roamin' eyes
If you wanna be my baby
Then you gotta be my baby
You can't keep your finger in two different pies

I remember how you pleaded
When my love you said you needed
And I believed without a doubt
So if you wanna be my baby
Then you gotta be my baby
And leave those kissin' cousins out

Yeah, you know how I said that I'm a-rollin' low?
I get suspicious and I'm a-gonna tell you so
If you wanna be my baby
Then you gotta be my baby
And be nobody's baby but mine

You better think about it

Now I heard there was another
So I went and asked your mother
If anybody hung around besides me
She gave me no satisfaction
And now I can't take no action
But I think that I'll just hang around and see

If you wanna be my baby
Then you gotta be my baby
You gotta come to me and tell me so
If you wanna be my baby
Then you gotta be my baby
I'm tired of waitin' around, so let me know

Oh, how when I said that I'm a-rollin' low
I'm gonna get suspicious and I'm gonna tell you so
If you wanna be my baby
Then you gotta be my baby
And be nobody's baby but mine
I said and be nobody's baby but mine

And I mean it
