B-A-B-Y

Baby, ooh baby
I love to call you baby
Baby, oh oh baby
I love for you to call me baby
When you squeeze me real tight
You make wrong things right
And I can’t stop loving you
And I won’t stop calling you
Baby, oh baby
You look so good to me baby
Baby, ooh baby
You are so good to me baby
Just one look in your eye
And my temperature goes sky high
I live for you and can’t help it
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/soundtracks/baby-driver/b-a-b-y-by-carla-thomas.html]
You know I really don’t want to help it
B.A.B.Y. baby
B.A.B.Y. baby
Whenever the sun don’t shine
You go out to light my hind
Then I get real close to you
And your sweet kisses see me through
I said baby, ooh baby
You look so good to me baby
Baby, ooh baby
How I love for you to call me baby
When you squeeze me real tight
You know you make wrong things right
And I can’t stop loving you
And I won’t stop calling you
B.A.B.Y. baby

    1. I never saw the movie “Baby Driver”… My son knew it from there.
      Off Topic… Dave I published two posts today…you didn’t see the other did you? No one has even glanced at it…It must not have published because I looked in reader and couldn’t find it…I’ll publish it tomorrow.

      I just reverted back to a draft

    1. That is because it said “Published” but around noon…I noticed it didn’t have any views and it was a Badfinger song…I knew someting was wrong….searched in the Reader and it wasn’t there…I reverted it back to draft so it’s coming tomorrow

      1. I’ve had that also. I don’t want the other person to think I’m ignoring them. It’s when I schedule a post is when it vanishes at times.
