   My Baby
My love for you is unending
Yet sometimes wish you never came
You have made my life very complicated
What's going on here, anyway?
Shouldn't I be having fun?
I wish I could have done things differently
but there's no time for remorse -
I've got to change your diapers
It scares me to think that every decision I make now
will affect your life later
I pray that I can raise you right
and that you'll forgive me for my mistakes
Why don't you stop screaming?
You're much easier to love when you coo
Did I ever tell you that you look like MY mom?
When you grow up I'll teach you how to dance
I want so much for you, but I have so little to give
Maybe I'll explain this all to you when you're older
