Baby

This song is by The Roots and appears on the album Game Theory (2006).

Black Thought:
Slow down when your hittin' them corners.
Fuck around, spill this 'gnac on my $200 suit.
(Stop being a backseat driver man)

(Turn him up)
Your ma don't like to jitterbug, said this unholy music,
Hip-hop just so ridiculous, everything sounds so confusin'.
Nowadays, ain't nothin' like it was,
One thing that's sure, the blues is.
This system so mysterious, can't let that stop the movement.
Can't get no satisfaction,
They all laughin',
Glad it's happened.
All wings hot for the main attraction,
Actin' a fool with a lust for action.
Young girl caught in a crime of passion,
Sittin' there cryin' in designer fashion;
Didn't blow, didn't have time for askin'.
Somebody call for the ambulance.

(Baby, Baby, Baby)
Baby let me live, please girl let me slide.
(Baby, Baby, Baby)
Baby if you let me go, I swear I'll change,
Just change your mind.

Your old man don't like to jitterbug, said this old dirty music,
Hip-hop just so ridiculous, them stories too confusin'.
Nowadays he ain't lovin' you like he was,
And, you ain't there just for usin'.
Could have sworn that was him with another girl;
And, they wasn't out just for cruisin'.
Can't get no satisfaction,
He out late nights, probably smashin'.
Leavin' a trail like Charlie tracks
On the train on the ground, downtown Manhattan.
Everybody seen him run around, and you bound to catch him.
The condoms you found and asked him, "Was all this just for practice?"
He didn't realize what he had.
Now your heart got fractured.

(Baby, Baby, Baby)
Baby let me live, please girl let me slide.
(Baby, Baby, Baby)
Baby if you let me go, I swear I'll change,
Just change your mind.
