O, Baby blankets and baby shoes, baby slippers, baby spoons, walls of baby blue Dream child in my head is a nightmare born in a borrowed bed Now I know lightning strikes again It struck me once, then struck me dead My folly grows inside of me I eat for two, walk for two, breathe for two now
Well, the egg man fell down off his shelf All the good king's men with all their help struggled 'til the end for a shell they couldn't mend You know where this will lead, to hush and rock in the nursery for the kicking one inside of me I eat for two, walk for two, breathe for two now
When the boy was a boy, the girl was a girl, they found each other in a wicked world Strong in some respects, but she couldn't stand for the way he begged and gave in Pride is for men; young girls should run and hide instead Risk the game by taking dares with "yes" Eat for two, walk for two, breathe for two now
Walk for two? I'm stumbling Breathe for two? I can't breathe Five months, how it grows Five months now, I begin to show

The bedrock of David Guetta's Nicki Minaj-featuring single "Hey Mama" is a sample of "Rosie," a 1940s prison recording from folk archivist Alan Lomax that songwriter Esther Dean first showed the French DJ on YouTube.
