My Baby

Mort Shuman b. 12 November 1936 d.2 January 1991, Jerry Ragovoy b. 1935.

And when I work hard all day long
I tell you it don't 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 that 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
Hon I wanna tell you somethin' that I do.

Deep down, 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
Hon I got m-my baby, oh babe yeah.

And when I wanna call on that man
And, oh he seems to be there when I need him
And when I wanna reach out my hand
And always seems to 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
Hon I got my baby, yeah. ¥Ç¥

As recorded at Sunset Sound Studios (Los Angeles, CA) on 24 September 1970 and first released on the vinyl album "Pearl" (side 2 track 1) Columbia KC-3022.
