The Babysitter's Here

Album: The Honesty Room (1993)
  • Tonight was just great,
    She taught us the sign for peace.
    Now She's made us some popcorn,
    We've turned out the lights and we're watching movies
    I don't understand and she tries to explain
    How a spaceship is riding through somebody's brain
    And their blood and guts and oh

    She's the best one that we've ever had
    She sits on her hair
    And she's tall as my dad
    And she tie-died my shirt,
    And pierced her own ear
    And it's peace, man, cool, yeah, the babysitter's here

    Her boyfriend is Tom but we call him the king of romance
    He wears an American flag on the butt of his ripped up pants
    And will they get married with kids of their own?
    He says "Not if she's going to college we won't,"
    And he kisses her, oh
    Someday I'll have a boyfriend just like that

    She's the best one that we've ever had
    She sits on her hair and she's tall as my dad
    And she got mad at dinner when Tom drank a beer
    But peace man, cool, hey, the babysitter's here

    And we all went to see her go dance at the high school
    We made her a big
    And she told us that she'd be the unicorn wearing the pink leotard
    And there she was leaping up just like she said,
    With a sparking horn coming out of her head
    And she's oh...oh oh uh oh
    I can't wait to give her card, I can't wait to give her the card

    She's the best one

    OK, so, the play was called the unicorn,
    And she was the unicorn,
    That means the star...was my babysitter!

    But it's Saturday night,
    I can't sleep, and we're watching the news
    She says, "Do me a favor,
    Don't go with a boy who would make you choose,"
    And I don't understand, and she tries to explain
    And all that mascara runs down in her pain
    Cause she's leaving me, oh no

    You're the best one that we've ever had
    You sit on your,
    And you're tall as my dad
    And I'll make you a picture for college next year
    So hush now, peace, man, the babysitter's here.
    The best babysitter's here.

    We will see the spinache.
    Just sometimes, though, not all the time. Writer/s: DAR WILLIAMS
