This World Submit Correct Lyrics

I read about this baby, she got beat up by her dad
She was nine months old and he was a full grown man
She may have been learnin' how to crawl and he put a fist in her face
And the doctor said this baby's gone, she can't be replaced

Now you read a lot of things in the daily news
But I'm laying awake at nights, wonderin' what to do
I pray the Lord, her soul to keep 'cause all down here are fast asleep
But I want to say, this baby belongs to me and you
So we gotta wake up, this baby belongs to me and you

Everyday I wake up in this world, it's spinnin' out of control
Who's at the wheel, seems no one knows
We're all just like a baby frightened and so sad
Feeling beat up by someone who looks like dad

Now you read a lot of things in the daily news
But I'm laying awake at nights, wonderin' what to do
I pray the Lord, our souls to keep 'cause all down here are fast asleep
And I want to say, this world belongs to me and you
Yes, we gotta wake up, this world belongs to me and you
Just want to wake up, this world belongs to me and you
