My Baby (Alternate Take) Lyrics

by Janis Joplin

And when I work hard all day long
I'll tell you when to bother me nohow
'Cause how could anything ever go wrong

When I got my baby, Lord, yes
When I got my baby, oh Lord!

And when they tell me love is pain
I said it might be true for you, honey
But not for Janis no more, no no no no
All I've ever got to do is call out that man's name

Yeah and I got m-my baby, Lord, yeah
Yes I got my baby, good good God
Honey, I wanna tell you something that I do

Deep down, h-honey, in the dark of night
When I lay my head down, I wanna go to sleep
And I know everything is gonna be alright

Yeah I got my baby, Lord yeah
'Cause I got m-my baby, oh yeah

And when I wanna call the names
Or the things to be that wanna be to you
And when I wanna reach out my hand
It always seems you hold me, dear

Love, don't you know how long I looked for you
Daddy, daddy, daddy
Love, don't you know how hard I tried

But now I got my baby, Lord, yeah
Now I got my baby, yeah
