​Babytalk

This song is by Everclear and appears on the album Songs From An American Movie Vol. Two - Good Time For A Bad Attitude (2000).

Original video
This is a song about Spike
He is a bad ass guy
Who just happens to be
A really good friend of mine

Everyone I know, yeah
Who knows Spike too
Will agree when I say the words
That Spike is cool

The problem with my friend Spike
He has fallen into
A true love with a nice girl
Who has gotta lot of tatoos

He always talks crazy
Whenever she calls
He always talks like a baby
Yeah, it's obvious she's got him by the balls

She's got him by the balls
Yes, she's got him by the balls

My weird little brother James and his ex-girlfriend
They would talk in those ridiculous voices
We would all be hanging out
Getting drunk in the neighborhood
And they both would make those ridiculous noises

He would always talk crazy
Whenever she calls
He always talks like a baby
It's obvious they've got him by the balls

I hate you when you talk like that
I wish you could act like a grown man

(They've got him by the balls)
I hate you when you talk like that
I wish you could act like a grown man

(They've got him by the balls)
I hate you when you talk like that
I wish you could act like a grown man

(They've got him by the balls)
You will never see me walking that walk
You will never catch me talking that babytalk

Which brings me back to Spike
A good guy to have in a fight
Unless he was with his girlfriend
Obnoxious on Saturday night

You know he couldn't care less
What anyone thinks
He does not give a damn
No, 'cause he has no shame

He looks so happy
Just like everything is fine
He is oblivious to the fact
That he has no spine

'Cause he always talks crazy (you have no shame)
Whenever she calls (you have no shame)
He always talks like a baby (you have no shame)
It's obvious now they've got him by the balls

I hate you when you talk like that
I wish you could act like a grown man
(They've got him by the balls)

I hate you when you talk like that
I wish you could act like a grown man
(They've got him by the balls)

You will never see me walking that walk
You will never catch me talking that babytalk

I am not going to let it get to me
They've got you by the balls
Yeah, they've got you by the balls
Yeah, they've got you by the balls
