The Oldest Baby In The World Lyrics

She's got the mind of a child - and a body peaking over the hill
Well she would if she could - and she should - but nobody will
With her nails painted red - and her hair so unnaturally curled
Well I think that she may be - the oldest baby in the world

She's tasted the night life - but it's left her with nothing but hunger
And all the available men - seem to think - that they want something younger
But youth is a costume - and the beauty within lies unfurled
And I think that she may be - the oldest baby in the world

Fast horses win races - royal flushes beat aces
And everyone’s playing to keep
So lets turn out the lights - and rock that old baby to sleep

She loves the sound of the rain - but you know she's still afraid of the thunder
She keeps a head full of hope - and a heart - that's so full of wonder
She may look like a woman - but she's still some daddies little girl
And I think that she may be - the oldest baby in the world

Yes, I think that she may be - the oldest baby in the world
