Well they took some honey from a tree
Dressed it up and they called it me
Everybody's tryin' to be my baby
Everybody's tryin' to be my baby
Everybody's tryin' to be my baby now

I Woke up last night half past four
Fifteen women knockin' at my door
Everybody's tryin' to be my baby
Everybody's tryin' to be my baby
Everybody's tryin' to be my baby now

Went out last night mean to stay late,
fore home I had nineteen dates
Everybody's tryin' to be my baby
Everybody's tryin' to be my baby
Everybody's tryin' to be my baby now

I Woke up last night half past four.
Fifteen women knockin' at my door
Everybody's tryin' to be my baby
Everybody's tryin' to be my baby
Everybody's tryin' to be my baby now

Well they took some honey from a tree
Dressed it up and they called it me
Everybody's tryin' to be my baby
Everybody's tryin' to be my baby
Everybody's tryin' to be my baby now
