Crybaby    



Did you get upset, when somebody brought a baby
Who just cried, and cried, and cried
Lighten-up
That's where you were
Oh, I know
Your mama said you never cried
You were best baby
Your mama loves you, but you cried
It's your language

That is how you got attention
You never said "hey, over here"
You just cried
It's your language
So, lighten-up
Crybaby
