PRETTY BABY

Pretty baby grew into a lady
The people don't know what your mama know
They don't
Pretty baby

In the light of the dawn
A pretty babe was born
Her mother she had sworn to take good care of her
Every night mom would pray
Her life would not be torn
Her clothes would not be worn
Until they dropped off of her
My child, you dear, don't have no fear
I'll shed the tears, keep your head clear
My Pretty Baby

Pretty baby grew into a lady
The people don't know what your mama know
They don't
Pretty baby

Little girl I want you to attend the finest schools
And never be a fool
I've got experience
Learn all that you can
You'll find that in the end
You'll learn how to depend on yourself
It makes me glad you have the things I didn't have
Never be sad, my Pretty Baby
