Baby, baby why you walk all over me?
I say that maybe you can’t help but cannot see
Everyday you run away I’m left behind
So I’ll stay and lay awake with less to find to ease my mind

Believe me girl I know you had to go
Still it hurts me so not to see you grow
So I’ll turn to all I have to ease my pain
My sweet little baby girl, the sweetest baby Mary Jane

Sweet Mary rocks me softly back to sleep
Says everything will be ok
Sweetest Mary gives me loving not to keep
Says to give it all away

Now I know we said it’s better off this way
But I sat down and did some thinking yesterday
What I came up with could do just fine
Give up everything and become Rastafari
