  • Lyrics
  • I was a hard-going push mowing hard-laying kid
    Baseball and MTV
    Turned into a blue jean midnight Chevrolet cigarette do about anything
    Spend a decade chasing a dream
    And a love and I cough me a couple I guess
    But for ever thrill that I chased down
    It's easy to confess
    I found a better kind of crazy
    Now that I've got babies

    And good things come to those who wait
    Used to think that's just something people say
    So imagine when you get the news
    After years of trying
    Not just one but two

    She was Memphis ol' miss outta my league
    Saturday night friend of a friend
    Once the fuse was lit
    The fire burned quick
    Two months she was moving in
    We were just getting by
    Still newlyweds high
    Not tried, but oh so true
    We were half empty bottles
    Of barefoot wine
    Free falling and bullet proof
    But I've found a better kind of crazy
    Now that I've got babies

    And good dreams come to those who wait
    Used to think that's just something people say
    So imagine when you get the news
    After years of trying
    Not just one but two

    You were prayed about
    All planned out
    Even had us a couple good names
    After four hard years and no close calls
    And no one else to blame
    I was going crazy
    Thank God you came and saved me
    I got babiesWriter/s: SCOOTER CARUSOE, DAVID NAIL, LEE THOMAS MILLER
