Do You Wanna Be My Baby?

Tits & Ass Demo, 12 August 1996

Per: Oh yeah! This demo. Forgot about it. Made by MP and me in the old Tits & Ass Studio. Could have made a great Rox-track (with Marie on vocals), don’t you think?

Original Version

I saw you rushing down the street
People were pushing in the heat
Well, I was stuck behind the wheel
I guess y’all know how it fells
Well, I was trying to keep your pace
You kicked me flat out on my face
You sent me craving on the moon
Up to the air like a balloon

How come you’re looking so good?
How come you’re looking so fine?
I wasn’t ready for you
Well, I was just passing time

Do you do you do you do you
Do you wanna be my baby?
Do you do you do you do you
Do you wanna be my baby?
I really gotta know, oh oh
I really gotta know, oh oh

It’s really tricky to explain
It’s really crazy to stay sane
Some things they happen really fast
Some things are born and bred to last

How come you’re looking so cool?
How come you’re looking so fine?
No one is ready for you
I’m only passing my time

Do you do you do you do you
Do you wanna be my baby?
Do you do you do you do you
Do you wanna be my baby?
I really gotta know, oh oh
I really gotta know, oh oh
I really gotta know, oh oh
I really wanna know, oh oh

Do you do you do you do you
Do you wanna be my baby?
Do you do you do you do you
Do you wanna be my baby?
I really gotta know, oh oh
I really gotta know, oh oh
I really gotta know, oh oh
I really gotta know, oh oh
I really gotta know, oh oh
I really wanna know, oh oh
I really gotta know, oh oh
I really wanna know, oh oh
I gotta wanna know
