just to see you smile lyrics – 27th hour

i walked twenty blocks to your favorite bakery
to pick you up a little treat
i know you’re not an early riser
after a long night on your feet

and this pretty flower’s called a st. marlena
it’s grown in the african wild
aw, baby just to see you smile
baby just to see you smile

we could have ourselves a sunday picnic
spread a blanket on the gr*ss
i got a brick of firecrackers
let’s see how long these babies last… that’s right

aw, there oughta be a law against this
tonight i put myself on trial
oh, baby just to see you smile
baby just to see you smile
baby just to see you smile

i know you got it in ya
aw, what i wouldn’t give ya
oh baby

you got the gift that keeps on giving
so baby, why you wanna keep it hid?
i’ve done so many things that i’m not proud of
but only you can make me feel like my old self again

and if the moon’s the only light left shining
i’d walk a thousand miles
oh, baby just to see you smile
baby just to see you smile

baby just to see you smile
oh you know, i got to have it
honey, you could stop the traffic
one time, two times
