    "Baby Girl" Lyrics

    Nelly Furtado

    I've seen a man cry, I've seen a man die inside
    I've seen him say to me that he is only mine
    That he gotta do what is best for him
    Never let me in, not even begin
    To tell me I'm the one under his moon and sun
    That I am the thing that revolves around him
    But while on top of him I know what's best for him
    I'll show him how to win and let me in cuz

    I don't wanna be your baby girl
    I don't wanna be your little pearl

    I just wanna be what's best for me
    To be one-da-dum with my own star under my own sun

    We're all sorry now, I didn't mean to wow
    Make you cry like that, it's just a little spat
    Still I want you to know, though I love you so
    It's mostly me dreaming, forcing, believing
    That you're an ideal, hell I never steal
    But I stole you from, from another one
    So take yourself and wrap around my little finger
    Cuz that's how it should swing


    Why can't he see, why can't he see what's inside of me,
    yeah... don't you, don't you call me coochie-coo a little girl, now...
    don't you gaga goo no coochie-coo girl now
    I'm so much more, can't you see? Can't you see?
    Look who's writing now a token of their love
    Can't you see love that it's just because
    I wanted a cheap way to get inside your head
    And not a cheap way to get inside your bed
    Oh you're running now, with that silly one
    It's all over now, this woman's just begun
    Maybe we'll see about the will and the way
    Butterflies return some day
