Layaway

Baby loves the ocean

But he’s afraid to swim

Stands out against the waves

And takes ’em on the chin

 

Baby loves his music

But he won’t play a note

Leans against the lyrics

Repeats ’em all by rote

 

Well, what’ll come out if baby plays?

If he lets the tide take him away?

Nobody knows ’cause nobody stays

Baby’s love’s on layaway

 

And baby loves tomorrow

Always one more than today

Postdating his sorrows

But someone always pays

 

Well, what’ll come out if baby plays?

Lets the tide wash his fears away?

Nobody knows ’cause nobody stays

Baby’s love’s on layaway
