When I was born my mother died
She said, "Bye-bye baby, bye-bye"
I said, "Where you goin'?"
I'm just born

She said, "I'll only be gone for a while"
My mother loved to leave in style
That's why God made the movies

Well I laid around in my swaddling clothes
Until the doctor came and turned out the light
Then I packed my bag
With my nametag

And stole away into the night
Hoping things would work out alright
That's why God made the movies

Say you will, say you will
Say you'll take me to your loving breast
Say you'll nourish me with your tenderness
The way the ladies sometimes do

Say you won't, say you won't
Say you won't leave me for no other man
Say you'll love me just the way I am
Say you will, say you will to say you know
Say you know

When I was born my mother died
She said, "Bye-bye baby, bye-bye"
And since that day
I've made my way

The notorious boy of the wild
Adopted by wolves when he was a child
That's why God, that's why God
That's why God made the movies
