lyrics

My Baby’s Got to Shine
Words and Music by John Wolfe Compton

I work so hard for all of my pay
saving up all my dimes
But when I come home at the end of the day
My little girl looks so fine

Brand new shoes, and a brand new dress
Sparkling jewels of every kind
I don't need a thing to impress
Because I love to see my baby shine


CHORUS
My baby's got to shine
My baby got to shine
My baby's got to shine
All the time


I give her everything, that a girl needs
And you know she's easy to find
Lit up like a spark, in the park - just after dark
Now just look at that girl shine


Everyone tells me
I’ve been such a fool
Giving all I've got
Only to you


Now my baby she really loves me
She tells me all of the time
She says, "just give me all you got to keep the weather hot   
Cause Johnny I've got to shine"


My baby's got to shine
My baby got to shine
My baby's got to shine
All the time
