lyrics

i've got a handheld baby
She never wants to be set down
i've got a handheld baby
She cries when i'm not around

i've got a handheld baby
my feet are sore, my wrists are shot
i've got a handheld baby
my back's tied in one big knot

CHORUS
When will you ever go down?
When will you ever go down, my darling?
Not to interrupt
But the sun's coming up
And I wonder, will you ever go down?

i've got a handheld baby
she likes to flail her arms around
i've got a handheld baby
you can try, but she won't be bound

i've got a handheld baby
She has a sixth sense 'bout her bassinet
i've got a handheld baby
the thought causes her to fret

CHORUS

i've got a hand-held baby
I wrote this song with just one arm
i've got a hand-held baby
At least i know she's safe from hasrm

i've got a hand-held baby
for you alone, i stay up past 3
i've got a hand-held baby
that's how much you mean to me

CHORUS
