Bette Midler
Cradle Days

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!
