Written by Ed McGinley, Les Keye & Lorraine McColgan


You’re my little baby
You’re my good luck charm
I’m full of bad intentions
Something inside of me’s wrong
Call up your fortune teller, ask her what she sees
A little pick-me-up from a china cup, brings out the bad in me

I want my baby back! I want my baby back!

The moon is full in the nighttown sky
And the water’s under the bridge
The ghouls are out on the prowl tonight
And the potion’s safe in the fridge
But I’m not ready, to spend a night at home on my own
All of my fears, since she disappeared, have chilled me down to the bone

I want my baby back! I want my baby back!

I can croon and I can growl… I can bay or croak or howl
I’m a lizard, I’m an owl, I’m a dawg in search of fowl…

This whole town is empty
The carnival is packed up and gone
The rain-soaked streets are deserted
The rooftop’s got a menacing frown
Look down upon my nightmare, laugh at my trembling fears
Ridicule this stupid fool and mock his luckless tears

I want my baby back! I want my baby back!

The Winters Norfolk Island

Steeped in the sound of classic American folk musics—blues, country, RnB, soul, Appalachian—they emerge with their own identity, some kind of hybrid of Roy Orbison and the Sir Douglas Quintet… oscillating between moody and clubby.
