Be My Baby - John Lennon



The night we met I knew I needed you so
And if I had the chance I'd never let you go
So won't you say you love me
I'll make you so proud of me
We'll make them turn their heads every place we go

So won't you please
(be my be my baby)
Be my little baby
(my one and only baby)
Say you'll be my darling
(be my be my baby)
Be my baby now oh oh oh oh

I'll make you happy baby just wait and see
And for every kiss you give me I'm gonna give you three
Since the day I saw you
You know I was waiting for you
You know I will adore till eternity

So won't you please
(be my be my baby)
Be my little baby
(my one and only baby)
Say you'll be my darling
(be my be my baby)
Be my baby now oh oh oh oh

Instrumental

Since the day I saw you
You know I was waiting for you
You know I will adore till eternity

So won't you please
(be my be my baby)
Be my little baby
(my one and only baby)
Say you'll be my darling
(be my be my baby)
Be my baby now oh oh oh oh

We can still hear that beautiful, otherworldly voice, forever young, eternally irreverent. John Lennon left an indelible mark on our culture that cannot be denied. He is still a very real part of our lives, almost as much as he was all those years ago when he walked among us. Thanks to the miracle of recorded sound, the voice of John Lennon can still be heard, a lingering ghost from our past that refuses to fade into the void. At least we have that to be grateful for. Dr. Winston won't be going away any time soon.

When a celebrated person passes on, we may pause and reflect for a moment on his or her life and career, but then we move on. We may watch with appreciation the brilliant performance of a long dead James Dean in the film Giant and think not a thing about his absence from our lives. That's not the case in this instance.

I sure do miss John Lennon.

Before you cross the street
Take my hand
Life is what happens to you
While you're busy making other plans

Tom, thank you for stopping by and leaving this beautiful comment.

You said it well. We have the miracle of recorded sound to thank for, for us to be able to enjoy the fruits of John Lennon's genius. Indeed, an indelible mark he left on our culture.
