Clean Banndit ft. Aanne Marie - Rockabye Lyrics

Call it love and devotion

Call it the mom’s adoration

Foundation
           
A special bond of creation, hah
                                 
For all the single mums out there going through frustration

Clean Bandit, Sean-da-Paul, Anne-Marie


[Verse 1]


She works the night, by the water
           
She’s gone astray, so far away
     
From her father’s daughter
     
She just wants a life for her baby
             
All on her own, no one will come
           
She’s got to save him (daily struggle)


She tells him “ooh, love, no one’s ever gonna hurt you, love

I’m gonna give you all of my love

Nobody matters like you”

She tells him “your life ain’t gonna be nothing like my life

You’re gonna grow and have a good life

I’m gonna do what I’ve got to do


[Chorus]


So, Rockabye baby, Rockabye

I’m gonna rock you

Rockabye baby, don’t you cry

Somebody’s got you

Rockabye baby, Rockabye

I’m gonna rock you

Rockabye baby, don’t you cry

Rockabye,   no    (rockabye, rock-a rock-a rockabye)

Rockabye,    (rockabye, rock-a rock-a rockabye)


[Verse 2]


Single mama you doing out there

Facing the hard life, without no fear

Just so you know that you really care

Cause any obstacle come you’re well prepared

And no mama, you never shed tear

Cause you have to set things year and to year

And you give the youth love beyond compare

You find his school fee and the bus fare

Mmm Marie, the paps’ disappear

In the round back can’t find him nowhere

Steadily you work flow, everything you know

You know say you nuh stop the time fi a jear


Now she gotta a six year old

Trying to keep him warm

Trying to keep out the cold

When he looks in her eyes

He don’t know he’s safe


When she says “ooh, love, no one’s ever gonna hurt you, love

I’m gonna give you all of my love

Nobody matters like you”


[Chorus]


So, Rockabye baby, Rockabye

I’m gonna rock you

Rockabye baby, don’t you cry

Somebody’s got you

Rockabye baby, Rockabye

I’m gonna rock you

Rockabye baby, don’t you cry

Rockabye,   no    (rockabye, rock-a rock-a rockabye)

Rockabye,    (rockabye, rock-a rock-a rockabye)

Rockabye, don’t bother cry

Lift up your head, lift it up to the sky

Rockabye, don’t bother cry

Angels around, you just dry your eyes


[Verse 3]


Now she gotta a six year old

Trying to keep him warm

Trying to keep out the cold

When he looks her in the eyes

He don’t know he’s safe when she says


She tells him “ooh, love, no one’s ever gonna hurt you, love

I’m gonna give you all of my love

Nobody matters like you”

She tells him “your life ain’t gonna be nothing like my life

You’re gonna grow and have
