  • Lyrics
  • Little hands, little feet
    Tiny heart, tiny beat
    Oh, thinkin' about the time we spent falling in love (in love)
    I don't wanna leave you
    I don't want him to see you
    But oh, when mama cries from daddy's lies
    Oh my, please don't take him away, no, no, no
    Don't take him away

    Oh, cause I had my doubts, oh!
    Don't take my baby boy
    Don't take my pride and joy
    I hope I stay close
    I hope I stay close

    All the pain, all the tears
    Many nights, many years
    This love for me is fading
    You waited, but I never came home to you
    I've never lied about us
    We were never supposed to be together
    When you see me with some other one and they know your son
    Oh, please don't take him away
    You said you're wrong but you knew

    Oh, cause I had my doubts, oh!
    Don't take my baby boy
    Don't take my pride and joy
    I hope I stay close
    I hope I stay close

    There was a time before you
    And there will be a time after you
    Though these bodies are not our own
    Walk tall little one, walk tall
    Let me hold you, let me hold youWriter/s: DONALD MCKINLEY II GLOVER, LUDWIG EMIL TOMAS GORANSSON
