Cradle Days Lyrics

Artist: Bette Midler
Album: Thighs & Whispers

You took me from my mother's lovin' arms.
I still had about a foot to grow.
Whoa-ooh, I must have been only maybe seventeen.
It was a very long time ago.

Actually we raised each other;
you, our kids and myself.
You wait 'til you become a part of me,
then you wanna put me on the shelf.

Woah, that first kiss you gave me, I still remember.
I was just a child, dear.
Your lips were so warm and tender.
That kiss, I'll always remember.
That was the first day we met.

I remember what the preacher said:
"Girl, will you be his wedded wife,
(forever and ever)
'n' stand beside that boy forever,
like for the rest of your natural life?"

You took my darlin' babies from me!
You really broke my heart in two!
God in heaven knows that I love them!
And in your heart you know it's true!

Oh, that first kiss you gave me, I still remember.
I was just a child. Your lips were so warm and tender.
That kiss, oh, I'll always remember.
That was the first day we met.
(Always remember. It's a kiss that I'll never forget.)

I don't remember too much about my cradle days.
Guess you could say I became a woman too fast.
Whoa, what did I know? That you were the right man for me.
What did I know? I knew that I loved that man!

Whoa, that first kiss you gave me, oh-o-o, how I still remember!
I was just a child, dear. Your lips were so warm and tender.
That kiss, I will always remember,
'cause that was the first day we met.
The first day we met, darlin', darlin', whoa, the first day we met.

Whoa, I remember!
Come back, baby, let's talk it over!
Don't take your love away from me!
Come back, baby.
Oh, don't you wanna try it on one more time boy?
Let's talk it over. Let's talk it over!
Oh, how can I forget you?
Branded me! Scarred by your love!
That first kiss you gave me boy!
