You know it's hard for me
I cannot use the phone 
In the shape of publicity 
No relationship is born
I feel like a Hercules who's recently been shorn 
But I have always loved my baby sister 

Pick me up at eight 
You'll see me on tv
I don't know I don't look well
Time's not been good to me
But please believe me
The blame is all on me
I have always loved my baby sister 

 Remember when, we were younger when
You would wait for me at school 
Teacher's friends and brazen sins
And I was often cruel
But you always believed in me
You thought I was the best
And now that I got you alone 
Let me get this off my chest 

Pick a melody 
Then count from one to ten
I make a rhyme up
Then we will try again 
To laugh or cry or give a sigh
To past that might have been
And how much I really love my baby sister 
And how much I really love my baby sister 
And how much I really love my baby sister 

Ba ba ba ba... [Repeat]
