Lejos and Mary Lay dazed in Liula Dreaming of tropical signs As Lejos lay sleeping She knelt over him weeping Feeling the weight of his crimes It seems he cut a man down in a Tennessee town And he's just licking his wounds for a spell But it won't take long for the boys to catch on And soon he'll be running like hell Run Lejos run This ain't no time for that ball and chain Run Lejos run Climb on that pony and ride like you never done Ride like you never done Well their love it was long It was gentle and strong And for a while she forgot his sins And she kissed him for love She kissed him for luck She kissed him one time for a kid Well they came in without a warning in the hours before morning They come-a blasting through the windows and walls And when the smoke it did clear somebody cried out he ain't here Killed ourselves a woman that's all Run Lejos run This ain't no time for that ball and chain Run Lejos run Climb on that pony and ride like you never done Ride like you never done

Jay-Z's 2012 "Glory" features his daughter Blue Ivy Carter's cries and coos. At less than two days old, she became the youngest ever credited artist to feature on a Billboard chart when the song debuted on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs at #74.
