baby talk lyrics – everclear

this is a song about spike
he is a bad *ss guy
who just happens to be
a really good friend of mine

everyone i know…yeah
who knows spike too
would agree when
i say the words
that spike is cool

the problem with
my friend spike
he has fallen into
a true love with a nice girl
who has gotta lot of tattoos

he always talks crazy
whenever she calls
he always talks like a baby
it’s obvious now…
she has got him by the b*lls

she has got him by the b*lls…
she has got him by the b*lls

my weird little brother…james
and his ex-girlfriend
they would talk in those
ridiculous voices
we would all be hanging out
getting drunk in
the neighborhood
and they both would make
those ridiculous noises

he would always talk crazy
whenever she calls
he always talks like a baby
it is obvious now
they have got him by the b*lls

i hate you
when you talk like that
i wish you could act like a
grown man

(they have got you by the b*lls)

i hate you
when you talk like that
i wish you could act like a
grown man

(they have got you by the b*lls)

i hate you
when you talk like that
i wish you could act like a
grown up man

(they have got you by the b*lls)

you will never see me…
walking that walk
you will never catch me…
talking that babytalk

(you know it’s true…
they’ve got you by the b*lls)

which brings me back to spike
a good guy to have in a fight
unless he was
with his girlfriend
obnoxious on sat*rday night

you know he couldn’t care less
what anyone thinks
he does not give a d*mn
no, because he has no shame

he looks so happy
just like everything is fine
he is oblivious to the fact
that he has no spine

he always talks crazy
(you have no shame)
whenever she calls
(you have no shame)
he talks like a baby
(you have no shame)
it is obvious…
they have got him by the b*lls

i hate you
when you talk like that
i wish you could act like a
grown man

(they have got him by the b*lls)

i hate you
when you talk like that
i wish you could act like a
grown man

(they have got him by the b*lls)

you will never see me…
walking that walk
you will never catch me
….talking that babytalk

(you know it’s true…
they’ve got you by the b*lls)

i am not going to let it
get to me

they’ve got you by the b*lls
