“Annie Had a Baby” Lyrics

Well, Annie had a baby
Can’t work no more
Yeah, Annie had a baby
I can’t work no more
Every time we start to work
She got to stop and walk the baby ’cross the floor

She got to walk with the baby
Instead of me, she got to talk to the baby
Instead of me, she got to sing to the baby
Instead of me, she got to cling to the baby
Instead of me
Now I know, and it’s understood
That’s what happens when the gettin’ gets good

Hey, Annie had a baby
I can’t work no more
Yeah, Annie had a baby
Can’t work no more
Every time we start to work
She got to stop and walk the baby ’cross the floor

[break]

She got to (Walk with the baby)
Instead of me, she got to (Talk to the baby)
Instead of me (Sing to the baby)
Instead of me (Cling to the baby)
Instead of me
Now I know, and it’s understood
That’s what happens when the gettin’ gets good

Hey, Annie had a baby
I can’t work no more
Hey, Annie had a baby
Can’t work no more
Every time we start to work
She got to stop and walk the baby ’cross the floor

She got to walk with the baby
Instead of me, she got to talk to the baby
Instead of me, she got to sing to the baby
Instead of me, she got to cling to the baby
Instead of me
Now I know, and it’s understood
That’s what happens when the gettin’ gets good, yeah
