My baby stands up on his two feet,
In between my knees,
Holding tight onto me.
And he says, "Momma help me,
But don't hold me up.
I can perfectly handle all that I want.
So, momma leave me be,
But don't leave me.
Momma leave me be,
But don't leave me.
Momma leave me be,
But don't leave me."

My baby sits up in his high chair,
With a spoon in his hand,
And the food in his hair.
And he says, "Momma help me,
Don't leave me alone.
I can perfectly feed myself on my own,
So, momma leave me be,
But don't leave me.
Momma leave me be,
But don't leave me.
Momma leave me be,
But don't leave me."

Like a sailor in a little ship,
He goes to sea.
Always looking back to make sure

That he still sees the land.
Yeah, that's me.

My baby sleeps in his crib all alone.
In the middle of the night you can hear him call.
He says, "Momma, come here!
Momma, please pick me up!"
I say, "No, baby, go back to sleep.
That's enough.
So, baby leave me be,
But don't leave me."
Momma leave me be,
But don't leave me.
Baby leave me be,
But don't leave me.
Momma leave me be,
But don't leave me.
Momma leave me be,
But don't leave me.
Baby leave me be,
But don't leave me.
Momma leave me be,
But don't leave me.
Momma leave me be,
But don't leave me.
Just don't leave me.
