lyrics

My baby's girlfriend Zora has an island house
Halfway between Havana and Fort Lauderdale
She sends an airplane and a rocket and a bus
To bring her playgroup over for her crazy baby games

By two they're drinking coffee,
Eating sushi long before they're five
These babies won't stop growing up
So put your lullabies in overdrive

My niece's favorite band is *N S Y N C
She shakes her head when I ask "CSN&Y?"
She says she'd die if she could wrestle JT
And smiles an awkward smile when I burst into Fire and Rain

Her iPod has Maroon
It has no Jackson Five
These babies won't stop growing up
So put your lullabies in overdrive

My lover's lover's baby's teacher sings a song
I can't believe that baby even goes to school
His second birthday is the first day of July
If he gets homework, I'll just write a note and take him to the beach

By six they're multiplying,
Pretty soon, we'll teach them to derive
These babies won't stop growing up
So put your lullabies in overdrive

Less country than Robbie Fulks, less rock-and-roll than Steve Poltz, less uninhibited than Rhett Miller, less political than Billy Bragg, less fastidious than Josh Ritter... something for every clever song lover!
