    Rockabye

    Clean Bandit Feat. Anne-Marie and Sean Paul

    Back to Top 10

    Call it love and devotion
    Call it a mom’s adoration
    Foundation
    A special bond of creation, ha
    For all the single moms out there
    Going through frustration
    Clean Bandit, Sean-da-Paul, Anne-Marie
    Sing, make them hear

    She works the nights, by the water
    She’s gone astray, so far away
    From my 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”
    (Stay out there, stay out there)

    She tells him, “Your life ain’t gon’ be nothing like my life
    You’re gonna grow and have a good life
    I’m gonna do what I’ve got to do”
    (Stay out there, stay out there)

    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-rocka-rocka-rocka-bye
    (Rockabye, yeah oh oh)
    Rockabye-rocka-rocka-rocka-bye

    Single mama you doing out there
    Facing the hard life, without no fear (Yeah)
    Just so you know that you really care
    Cause any obstacle come you’re well prepared (Oh no)
    And no mama, you never shed tear
    Cause you have to shed things year after year
    And you give the youth love beyond compare (Yeah)
    You find his school fee and the bus fare (Yeah)
    Mmm Marie, the pops’ disappear
    In the round back can’t find him nowhere
    Steadily you work flow, everything you know
    Say you nah stop no time – no time for your jear

    Now she got 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 is 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”

    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
    (Oh-badda-bang-bang-bang, alright then)
    Rockabye, no

    Rockabye-rocka-rocka-rocka-bye
    (Rockabye, yeah oh oh)
    Rockabye-rocka-rocka-rocka-bye

    Rockabye, don’t bother cry
    Lift up your head, lift it up to the sky
    Rockabye, don’t bother cry
    Angels surround you, just dry your eye

    Now she got 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 is safe when she says

    I’m gonna give you all of my love
    Nobody matters like you”
    (Stay out there, stay out there)

    She tells him, “Your life ain’t gonna be nothing like my life (stay)
    You’re gonna grow and have a good life
    I’m gonna do what I’ve got to do”
    (Stay out there, stay out there)
