    BABY’S FATHER

    HUNGRY CHILDREN
    BORN FROM A NIGHT OF DELIGHT.
    WALKING DOWN OUR CITY STREETS.
    BEING ABUSED AND MISUSED
    BY ALL THE PEOPLE THEY MEET.
    BOY MEETS A GIRL, HE ENTERS HER WORLD.
    BOY WANTS A HUG, HE GETS IT FROM THE GIRL.
    NOW DRIVE-IN MOVIE, HOTEL, MOTEL AND CORNER BARS.
    SOMETIMES IN THE REAR SEAT OF CARS.

    A BABY BORN FROM A NIGHT OF DELIGHT.
    TELL THE CHILDREN THE TRUTH!!!
    WHEN IN COMES THE MORNING LIGHT.
    THEY WILL NOT VANISH FROM SIGHT.
    TELL HIM IF HE DON’T WANT TO BE A BABY’S FATHER,
    DON’T KISS THE YOUNG LADY.
    THAT’S THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE A BABY!

    IT’S THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE HER STOMACH STICK OUT.
    IT’S THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE HER BRUSSELL SPROUT.
    I GOTTA TELL THE YOUTHS.
    I GOTTA TELL THEM THE TRUTHS.
    WE GOT TO HELP ONE.
    UNTIL OUR WORK IS DONE.

    IF YOU DON’T WANT TO BE A BABY’S FATHER.
    DON’T KISS THE YOUNG LADY.
    THAT’S THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE A BABY.
    BECAUSE IF THE GIRL DON’T KISS YOU.
    THE BLOOD WON’T FLOW.
    THE SAME IS WITH A SEED; IF YOU DON’T PLANT IT
    THE SEED CAN’T GROW.
    NEVER PLAY IN THE WATER. . . . ..
    IF YOU DON’T WANT TO BE A BABY’S FATHER.
